Yes, you will pass with those. :rollsmile




He asked about bypass, not about Junk2 throttle body.
do i need to buy anything else with the shunk2 throttle body and intake manifold?

Skunk 2 throttle body is a cable throttle body. It won't work with TSX. I believe u need an intake manifold adapter from hasport for the intake manifold.
are these parts street legal and is that all i need a intake manifold adapter from hasport and how much will it cost?

OP where do you live? IIRC all the mods you have now would be considered illegal in CA. 415 = bay area?

actually, your header should be fine if it is CARB legal. i'm pretty sure your intake is CARB pending so expect to get some grief from cops if they pop your hood (most likely a fix it ticket). Lastly, an aftermarket exhaust in CA will probably get you a fix it ticket as well.

In regards to passing smog tests, it really depends on the place you to go. For the most part, a legit shop will do an emissions test (actual measurement of smog emissions) and a visual test (see if all your emissions related parts are legal). you'll most likely fail the visual test if the shop does it by the book.

Mind you i have no real experience with this. I've never had a cop ask to pop the hood, nor have i ever gotten a smog, so do some more research.
