2006 KN CAI never be CARB EXEMPT!

its been more then three years and to this date KN still hasn't carb exempted the 2006 model, so i emailed these guys my frustration and told me that most likely the emissions laws changed and it won't be exempted. i'm in a fowl mood and considering buying an 05 model and using the basis that my GTO was assembled in Oct. 2005 as making it fair. man cali sucks sometimes

well technically if i install the 2005 one on my GTO, i wouldn't be breaking the law because my GTO was assembled in OCt. 2005. and all i really need is that CARB exempt sticker to prove it

Unfortunately, that won't work, as your car is definitely an '06 model year. I emailed an acquaintance at K&N asking about this... I'll post what I find out from him.

Okay, I just heard back. Seems CARB currently has K&N's '06 GTO kit, along with about 150 other K&N parts, so it's just a waiting game. K&N feels very confident there will be no problem at all getting certified.

Ok I just noticed that you have a 05 hood on your 04? As for the smog thing Cali SUCKS!!!!! for anything on a car, I paid an extra $50.00 to K&N for the "carb exempt" on my 95 and woulden't you know it was off by 2 months I had to put the stock box on for smog witch was no big deal but K&N would not refund the money. Now on the flip side if you get pulled over and the cop decides to look the carb exempt sticker should save you a ticket.

Thanks for the comment on the hood... I bought the car like that, with the hood, grills, and the SAP wing, too. I think it was an end-of-the-model-year deal from Pontiac.

Another update straight from K&N- If you buy a (currently) non-certified kit from them, after it becomes certified you can contact K&N with all your info (receipt would be best, I think) as to when/where you bought it, and they'll send you the certification sticker! That sounds pretty darn cool to me!

dude thats a way better answer then what the guy from KN told me, he basically told me tough luck and to deal with it. well thats good to know that its in process of being evaluated, i swear this guy who was talking to me didn't really seem to put the effort
