I want to get the Comp 260 for my Hemi but I cant do it if I will have smog trouble in California. Anybody dealt with this yet?

I don't mean to be a wet blanket, but just because dline hasn't thrown a code doesn't mean everyone won't. Even some guys throw codes with the 6.1 cam, rare but it happens. Some trucks seem to be more prone to it then others, and I really like to hear from several 260 users to see if everyone is code free.

Well I know if it doesnt have the C.A.R.B. certification then it would be illegal but I dont think the testers would even be able to figure out that I had a cam. California's air quality test is pretty strict. Would it be able to pass that part of it?

Do they do the sniffer test, or plug into the diagnostics port? Here in TX the plug in and check for codes, and check to see everything is functioning correctly, as in emissions equipment.

They wouldn't know it wasn't CARB legal unless they took your truck apart. I'd be more worried about the codes than anything. Just make friends with a guy at an emissions center and you'll have no worries!

It would be so much faster just because I could do whatever I wanted to it, and not worry about smog tests!!! It's about 40 degrees here this morning and my truck is running like a raging BEAST!!!! Love cold temps.......

It seems like none of our California members have cams. Not very suprising! California emissions testing SUCKS!

Try Crane cams website. I think they might have CARB approved camshafts for your year, but I'm not really sure. Check out their site or call them. I'm also looking for CARB approved cams but for my 2001 5.9/360 Ram. I think they are the only ones that are emissions legal. The cam I'm looking at is the Power Max 2030 Part# 704121, but I believe this cam only applies to 1993-2001 5.9 Ram's. Good luck.

Do they actually crawl up, under, and in checking everything? Or do they just plug into the diagnostics port, and check for codes and emissions equipment functions. If that's all they do then you could run LT headers as long as there are no codes.

The Transgo shift kits rocks, part throttle shifts seem tighter and WOT shifts are instant. The Superchips made them firm but the shift kit made them quick. I have always had them set to shift at 5950 and before the shift kit the shift would end at 6200ish, now BANG ends right at 5950. It's not a head snapping mod like headers or a cam, but it helps you get the most from your trans. If you decide to get it, just get the one that modifies your valvebody, that's all you'll need.

The one for $105 is the one I got and half of it you can't even install unless you drop your trans. If the $58 one does the valvebody then don't worry about the other one, I haven't even installed the other half of the kit and probably wont.
