The next part is the bombshell. The CARB guy says that any police officer, who chooses to and looks at your engine can write you a fix it ticket if he has a reasonable belief the engine is not stock.

That's sad about a real GT5S and the CA regs. In relation to the issue of being stopped by a local Gum Shoe and he writes a fix it ticket, I believe there still must be a vehicle code citation number for this. This ain't like Dirty Harry where any Flat Foot can just issue a ticket without a citation tied to it. If you find a citation code in the CA code link above, then I suppose you could get that particular ticket, especially if you draw attention to yourself by reving the engine next to them at a stop light.
