Looking at putting Kooks headers with their green cats on my R/T. Are these emissions legal and/or will I pass smog?

Technically you are not supposed to replace any functional Cat before 50,000 miles. Moving the placement of the cats aka long tubes is frowned upon as well. Weather you can pass smog or get caught is a different matter altogether!

Ask the MFGR if it comes with a CARB OE number if it doesn't you will fail the visual inspection

No bueno.

For the cats:
Cats Are 49 State EPA Legal
Which means not smog legal in CA.

The headers definitely aren't smog legal here. The best you can do is swap in a set of SRT8 shorty headers and OEM mids since those are smog legal...on the 392. They also look factory, since they technically are, so there should be no problem passing the visual.
