Nice thread resurrection!

Unfortunately, no, there are no CARB certified intakes available at all for the BK1 3.8. There is one for the BK2, and only one, at that. The Injen SRI. Were you to buy both an Injen BK1 intake and a BK2 Injen SRI I bet you could totally get away with the EO sticker at smog shops/CHP stops, etc., but you will potentially get tagged if you ever get sent to a BAR ref.

That being said, buying two Injen intakes just to get a BS sticker is possibly more money than buying a stock airbox from Hyundai MOBIS. And the stock setup with a decent filter is great for power, but a little tiny bit sluggish for response to throttle inputs.

So it would be legal to have a alphaspeed tune on the genesis 2.0t in order to pass inspection when shipping from a place like Hawaii to California?

Short answer is no.
Technically modifying anything to the engines standard operations, is not legal... but they don't have to means to tell if the ECU has been modified.
They just test if there is anything flagging on the ECU (like an o2 sensor standby state) or any other codes... a sniffer test and visual inspection.

Okay, so it's not legal. But they wouldn't be able to figure it out unless I mess with the o2 sensor state within the tune?
