I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of parts you can and can't install in the mustang. I know CAI's can be a problem and throttle bodies I'm almost certain with manifolds, just not sure what else. So if anyone else knew a list of some sort or had an idea of those kinda parts that would be great. Also if anyone wants to share what they modded and installed that would be great too to share. Thanks everyone
Just warning you, and I am sure everyone on here agrees, once you start its VERY hard to stop =X

Well, there are a few superchargers that have CARB approval, Whipple, Roush M90, Saleen series VI, Edelbrock, Kenne Bell 2.3L, plus some of the centri's as well. I think I only saw 1 turbo on the list (http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermk...es/amquery.php)

You must search for parts that are 50 state! It's not really the CAI it's the tune, you need to have an emissions legal tune for testing.

Alot of lesser upgrades are 50 state legal. You can get tunes, catbacks, CAIs, etc. Just make SURE they are 50 state legal and when you get a tune from like AM, make sure to tell them you live in California.

The first two mods i think anyone starting out should go for is a GOOD custom tune and a CAI.

Its what i started out with, then did alot of appearance stuff, got bored with the power so im throwing in 4.10 in a couple of months.

It is the CAI or any physical part itself that makes something legal or illegal. When they pop the hood if the part does not have a CARB and it's clearly aftermarket, they'll flag you right there on the spot.

If your part is legal, then the tune can come into question when it's run on the smog station or they check for sensor preparidness. (I.e. you have the rear sensors turned off, red flag).
