If the JB4 has the readiness monitor/setting like the Procede then yes.

The issue in Cali is that there is also a "visual" portion of the smog test. IF the tech looks under your car and sees that there are stright pipes where there are supposed to be cats, it's an instafail.

So you'll need to find a lazy smog tech, or some other way around that.

Techs are not going to lift the car, take the under body cover off, and then look for cats in the downpipes.
