What's that mean buddy
It basically makes the engine legal in the chassis. You have to get the correct ECU, Cat, Header, Intake, then take the car to the Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) for a complete inspection. If it passed you can SMOG the car at any station. Also if you get pulled over the car/ motor is legal.

It's a California thing.

Took the hatch on a mountain trip over the weekend. Drove 392KM (260ML) and did some spirited driving on the back roads.
