Cali must be strict. Here in Colorado, I tell them I have a chip but it's on stock setting; they do not care as long as it passes. This is why I said what I did.
Stock tuning will not smoke. Some of the tuners do better than others at eliminating the smoke but it shouldn't smoke unless you are on 120/140 setting, possibly 100hp setting.
I know PHP tunes are good about smoke and I think TW tunes are good about minimal smoke. CT (caryt) can set you up with TW tunes and has the best prices on many items.
I think you need to find Cali guys or guys in your area to see what they are doing. I know there are guys in Cali with upgraded injectors,etc without issues for smog testing.
If you have a 2000, you should have forged rods and can teach your goal easily
