Now even that (legal) usage is eliminated.

I you watch the AEM videos, one of them mentions that they provide a CARB exemption sticker to be positioned so that emissions testing personnel can see it. That seems to be in conflict with the warning though.

Maybe you CA state guys have an idea about that.
The old term For OFF ROAD USE only " no longer is clear mostly because of Federal vehicle regulation on Federal lands like some parks and reservations. and could get someone into a wasp nest! That is why the exception information is longer and more detailed.

For me when I emission Test a vehicle if they have anything that is not within the guidelines even a simple universal hose that is not an OEM I may fail the test under the regulation guidelines. If they have aftermarket equipment and there are no CARB certification decals I ask the owner if they have it. If not I will as a courtesy (attitude of customer is considered) to look up the regulation information from the BAR and CARB guide. I will look up the manufacture and see the parts list and see if everything is there.

I personally do not stick the CARB stickers all over my engine but do have them filed in a folder and kept with other important information related to that specific car of mine. In fact I recently wrapped an intake tube and removed the CARB sticker damaging it. So I contacted the manufacture and they sent me a new one. It was K&N rolmao!!
