    Cool Blower, cam size, and California smog

    I'm looking to buy a v with mods by the previous owner. I've seen a couple across the country and my question is:
    How big of a cam can be run and still pass smog in California? I've been looking a blown/supercharged/maggied cars and non-blown.
    Here's a couple of links to ones I'm looking at.

    For Calif, you are gonna need the CARB sticker for the blower.

    Don't even ask me how long that took to get.
