until they start probing our exhaust pipes you can get away with a hollowed out cat installed. but believe me you better have that cat on there in ca, I've been pulled over by 2 highway patrol and both of them looked for the cat and even had a local pd look for a cat when he pulled me over. All within the last 5 years.
They are going to do a visual inspection of exhaust system so if you dont have that cat there then it will be an instant fail. I did not have a muffler last time I was smogged and they did not say anything.
Honestly a cop is going to give you a ticket for anything. So anything you do to your exhaust is legal in their eyes. They can pull you over for a modified exhaust tip and will just to inspect the rest of your exhaust system. This is why I feel really bad for 6.4 guys in CA considering their emissions equipment is IN their exhaust tip.
Make sure you have a cat installed in CA! just hollow it out. I got lucky this year I went into pay my registration this month and the dmv didnt require the smog check!! woot!
