So, which superchargers/turbos are actually CARB approved? I was looking through the CARB database and saw a few surprises and a lack of others.
The surprise was that turbonetics has a CARB approved kit, but only for 05-06.
Edelbrock is apparently not approved yet. Techco had never made it, so, what will happen to those in CA who got their kit when smog time comes around now that Techco is no longer? Kenne Bell is approved, but the description does not really define which version is approved. The Vortech V2 seems to be approved. Roushcharger is, but the Roush TVS is not. SMS has a 3.0L supercharger (very similar to the techco one in appearance), but it is not listed. Saleen has some things listed, but are they still making superchargers for the aftermarket?
Does anyone know if there is a 2.3L Eaton based TVS system that is approved and not just pending? Whipple?
I was planning on going forced in the spring, and am now trying to figure out what will be available and CARB approved that meets the power level I want (hoping to get 500-550 to the wheels, and yes, I am planning to get forged components in the bottom end).
What are the legal options?

Depends on the year for Paxton and Vortech. The Roush procharger R2300 does not include a calibration, so it's probably not CARB approved, too bad. The Whipple/Ford Racing HO is probably CARB approved, probably the best choice for the power you want to make.
