I purchased my Nissian Sentra spec-v Ser 2006 a year or two ago, I am getting ready to start driving it and this summer I was looking to do some work on it, the usual, stance it out, interior, exhaust, and the big thing was the turbo kit. I’ve been looking around and I see there is two kits, the turbonetics kit and the treadstone kit. They both seem very nice, how ever I am in California and the treadstone is not California compliant. So that being said its either I have to get the turbonetics kit OR I can get the treadstone kit and take off my turbo kit every time for a smog check. Has anyone ran into this problem? And does any one have any thoughts on what I should do? or any other important things I should know about either kit? !!! Please any information helps !!! I’m very new to the car community as I don’t even have my permit lol

issue comes down to: what will you do if you get pulled over and dont have a carb legal kit on the car when the cop ass to see under the hood? Do it right the first time. Get the carb legal part.

Neither kit is made any more, so you'll have to buy a used one or piece one together. I have a manifold and downpipe and some other stuff for sale if you are interested, send me a message.

That doesn't mean much. Treadstone dropped the platform. It's possible they have stuff laying around, but I would call before getting your money tied up.

I have used the ebay $75 cast manifold before. I never had any issues. They needed a bit of clean up in the runners, but otherwise they are good. As for a downpipe. Local fab shops can make you one, but you HAVE TO have the turbo you will be running. Nothing is more aggravating then getting asked: "Hey, can you make me a downpipe. I haven't figured out what turbo I am gunna run yet...I don't understand why i need to have the turbo for you to do it, its just a pipe."

literally had that conversation with someone two weeks ago. I just stopped answering them.
