Acutally, its not as bad as everyone thinks. If you have the proper/legal parts with tuning, you shouldn't worry about emmisions.

Most of the time the people who brags about it are the ones who want non-street legal or no emmisions device on their car.

Pre-tests can be done anywhere. You just got to ask for it. I just asked a place and they charge $20 for a pre-test. Just keep in mind that thats what it is only, a pre-test to see where you emmisions are, nothing official.

You're lucky! I just moved to California from Texas and spent the last two months trying to convert everything over. I have to go next weekend when my stock fuel pressure regulator comes in and hope those guys don't have me pull out EO numbers and such.
