I tried a search for "YF5 emissions", etc. and got basically nowhere.

I recall the smog station telling you it needed an EGR. My only question about this is, because all the other emissions devices were left intact, why would the PO then do something as obvious as removing the EGR if it was there in the first place?

The difference in the cost of the intake w/ and w/o the EGR isn't much. It's VERY obvious to a visual inspector that it's missing- so if it needs one, how was it passing CA emissions previously?

But- would it surprise me to find out it needed one? No- CA has traditionally had the strictest emissions in the country.
