    hypothetically, what is to to stop you from tagging a smog id tag from "legal" headers and putting it on some that may not necessarily have a CARB number? hypothetically of course

    i guess what i'm asking is would inspection stations let you get away with. my vehicle is registered in dallas co.

    Yeah CARB stands for California Air Resources Bureau. You have no need for a CARB plate, number or anything else like that as far as I know.

    I'd say just get some headers that have provisions for the EGR tubes, and you should be alright. I think most of the header manufacturers make these...I know hedman does, but I'm not positive which other ones do.
