I already got my car, so a little late to care, but does anyone know if the CA dealers had to make any mods to keep CA government happy? I know that the idiot lights are always turned off because of CA law, and sometimes they will tweak power to keep the air green.... err... blue..

Just curious.

Betcha its a chip. They can stop the engine from dumping too much fuel.

Not sure though.

Prolly...

Yup, I was hoping not, but I'd believe it. I meant to go out of state and get my new one, but I wanted to be the first in the area with one (so far, I haven't seen another in 4 weeks).

Oh well... I'll just wait and MOD it later.

No chips extra, usually its just the addition of precats. You shouldn't really notice any hits to power. There have been dyno's of CA Mazda6's that are equivalent or higher in numbers than those in other states with looser emissions.
