C.A.R.B certified?

Do aftermarket injectors and turbos require C.A.R.B. certification on a diesel?? If not why??

Don't know that they're required to be. I could be wrong, but if they are certified by C.A.R.B. then they are pretty much certified anywhere. California has some stringent emission laws and many aftermarket things that will be used on vehicles here need to be approved. Many states are now looking at or adopting similar standards.

I don't fully understand it and I live here.

Injectors they won't find given the way they smog diesels and I've found I can get away with a powermaxx with a non polished housing. It's only visual so if it doesn't smoke and looks stock, you're most likely OK.

If you're asking "is it legal?" no, both require CARB and no one has the cert with how expensive it it to get the certification. will you get caught is a whole nother question....

Just being curious, being that most things I've read about Cali and aftermarket parts require the certification.

Thanks, so it's one of them "don't ask, don't tell" things.

aftermarket turbos and injectors are not legal.
seeing as they cant pull your injectors out to check they have no idea, so just have a tune that limits the amount of fuel so you dont smoke to much and fail.
as far as turbos go get one that looks similar to stock because most smog techs have no idea the difference between a stock and aftermarket turbo.

more like, if they ask, deny things... I needed a CARB for my K&N and they didn't give me crap for anything else.

I would guess injectors no, turbo yes, but the stock turbo isn't stamped with the carb certification as far as I can see, so who would be able to tell, but it's been a few years since I had any carb training...probably wasn't pay attention anyways!!!!
