You wont pass, you will either need to find a shop to pay them off or you will have to put your stock exhaust back on. Longtubes move the cats which is illegal and with the true duals you probably dont even have cats. So you gotta remove everything and put it back to stock

You'll also need to put the EGR and air pump & tubes back on. Either find a legally blind smog guy, or get used to swapping out your exhaust every 2 yrs.
BTW, you can legally move your cats, but it can't be more then 3".

California has good weather but our emission laws are a tuner's nightmare.
If you bought your Camaro new you should'nt have to deal with a smog test for six years after the purchase of said vehicle.
If you are not the original owner then carry on.

You moved the cats, you're done. Hope you kept the stock stuff...

I am in the same position I used to have a hook up I paid a few hundred bucks to and got mine smogged but it is becoming near impossible with how strict they have become. They make you go only to a test only which get random inspections from the B.A.R. regularly. If you do not have to go to a test only station a lot of the smog techs if you make friends with them or small shops will pass you on visual if you can pass tailpipe emissions for a little $$$.

when i had my long tubes and true duals i welded the stock cats back on, the smog guy didnt give a :turd: and still passed. i had the basanni true duals though, so my exhaust went all the way to the back.
