Default Installed Amsoil air filter, an emission violation? 89 Accord lxi.

I recently bought a used an Honda which has been
modified and fitted with an Amsoil reusable, washable
bee-hive air filter. The intake tube was cut in half to
install the filter.

The original factory air box and its air filter is still in it's original
place and intact. Recently, Central California is very strict
with emissions modifications. Would a modified installation of
an Amsoil filter be considered an emission modification?

Thanks

I bet it would not pass. Most people with that setup would put it back stock,
take the test, then reinstall the aftermarket. It's a simple chore on most
cars.

Just stop by one of the smog stations and ask them.

* There is no need to modify anything when using Amsoil Air Filters
because when ordering you give your specs and/or measurements and it
will be special order". It's done all the time.

If your system does not look "stock", they will fail you and assume you made
modifications.
Moreso if there's a vacuum line or something like that on the stock airbox,
the airbox might be intact, but it's not monitoring anything, so in the
inspections eyes, you're going around the system.

I would remove the modification, put it back to a stock state, smog it, then
put the mods back in for another 2 years.

a cone filter morethanlikely will fail you because smog check II is nothing
but a nightmare. Only in California..
At worst you can use a K&N air filter, but it has to fit in the stock
airbox.
