Need CA emissions help

My stock charge pipe broke. Need a local LA n54 help to either borrow or buy stock charge pipe so I can pass visual inspection for emissions test. Please help!

Didn't check too hard but not that I saw. At least for reasonable price.

I guess you can buy an aftermarket one and pay to get passed.

Just get an all black one and don't say anything. Shouldn't be a problem unless there's a fancy badge on the CP. not a shiny black a matte black

Shouldn't be a problem since most techs would have no idea what is or isn't stock, nor would they know whether certain parts even have aftermarket support. That said you could still get a tech that knows just enough to screw with you. Please let us know how it goes.

Didn't pass. I'll take up someone on borrowing their stock one. I can pay for shipping. Or if you're local to LA I'll come to you, swap it off, smog, and return it.

I'll buy lunch too!
