In Cali, unless you have a "friend" or the techs at the smog check are lazy, ignorant, or apathetic, you will need your EGR cooler and cat.
There are also many counties in Cali that only require a smog certification only on transfer of ownership. For example, I live next to one of those counties and some people I know register their vehicles with a friends address or get a PO Box in the county next door. Just a thought.
