CA Smog: TRD Supercharger CARB Stickers Here (3rd Gen)

Numerous threads abound on the Interwebs how difficult and annoying it is to get CARB stickers for first and second gen superchargers for our 20+ year old 4runners. Also, how inconsistent some of the CA Smog test procedures are and what some shops require.

For those of you outside of California or are unfamiliar with the CA smog process, California Air Resource Board (CARB) requires all aftermarket add-ons to be tested and approved for CA emissions. An executive order declares parts are legal. Aftermarket parts manufacturers will provide a sticker to be placed inside your engine compartment identifying the executive order parts fall under. Smog techs will look up the executive order and verify your aftermarket parts are covered as part of the Smog inspection process.

Executive Order for 5VZ-FE TRD superchargers covers several vehicles and both first and second gen S/C's. More on this later.

Penalties for Smog shops is quite high for incorrectly passing vehicles. Penalty is $3,000 and suspension of license for 1-year, so many shops do not want to risk being out of compliance and would rather refer you to a Smog Referee (read more here) than put their shop at risk. Recently, Smog shops have been much stricter needing to see a sticker. Bringing in the executive order alone just doesn't work anymore - at least in the handful of shops I went to in Sacramento.

Requesting a replacement sticker from Toyota is becoming more and more difficult. I've seen mixed results from other threads where dealerships were able to source replacement stickers while others weren't. I called my local dealership and was informed that TRD no longer supplies stickers and I should reference the executive order (Ha! Thanks...). Parts numbers may have been updated and the parts associate at the dealership might have been looking for the wrong part number or had bad info. Who knows?

Backed into an administrative corner (and not wanting to go through the annoyance of finding a Smog Ref), I decided to create my own CARB stickers. Here were the source files I created:



Photoshop: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rzccs5e2um...icker.psd?dl=0
PDF: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vymqwxemh...icker.pdf?dl=0

Actual sticker size / dimensions are 2.375" x 2.375" with rounded corners and are an exact replica of the original TRD stickers referencing executive order D-425-13. I had stickers printed on vinyl decal material. Sticker easily passed visual inspection by smog tech.





Note: yeah, it really bugs me I didn't put the sticker on straight arrrrgh.

TRD has issued various stickers over the years referencing different executive orders and coming in multiple color combinations (some white on black, others black on white). I chose to replicate the D-425-13 sticker because that was the last sticker Toyota used prior to updating parts numbers for their first and second gen superchargers. I brought in my TRD installation instructions with original parts numbers in case the tech wanted to match up part numbers to what was on my 4runner. Also, it references a later executive order that includes verbiage for a 7th injector and ECU which was not referenced in D-425-4. I had the URD 7th injector kit installed (not CA legal) and was hoping it would pass a visual inspection since it aligned with what the executive order read (it did).

Print shop had an order minimum so I now have 8 extra stickers. I'll be putting up a separate post in classifieds selling the remaining stickers I have to recoup printing costs.

I have a copy of the CARB sticker for 3RZ supercharged trucks... boy that'd be nice to convert into sticker form. Not nearly as in demand though... still may pursue that for myself.

Good work man, looks nice.

Thank you!

Let me know if you want me to photoshop something and post files. It's fairly easy to find a print shop which can do custom sized vinyl decals.

I hope you're serious because I would LOVE that! They are extremely similar in design so hopefully some text should be all you need to change.

4 Cyl carb stickers are simply unobtainable... I managed to get in touch with one of the TRD Engineers, and with his help, the TRD gods bestowed me with the 4 Cyl CARB sticker (well, a scanned copy of it). I photographed it and kept it inside the glovebox.

Back in 2014, someone broke into my truck and stole everything from the glovebox - including my service records and owner's manual! The scanned CARB sticker? Gone forever

Thankfully I kept that photo.... it's the only reason I've managed to get the truck smogged since.

I could seriously kiss your feet if you could help with a file!

Dude - WTF. Lower than low stealing service records and owner's manual.

Here you go:

Belt Routing

Any local print shop should have the ability to print photoshop or PDF files. Only prob is having to do a minimum order volume. Then you end up with extra stickers like me.

Thank you for making me a reputable person!

I updated the routing pic a bit and made the belts darker and moved down the title. Links to files above have been updated, too.

Also wondering if you have anymore. If not I'll get my own printed! Got turned away from 2 smog shops because I don't have a sticker. Got it smogged fine 2 years ago and they didnt even throw it on a dyno

carb stickers are not hard to get. just go to the parts dept at the toyo dealer and order one. its $7 and takes maybe a week to show up. I just did this a few months ago. it was a peice of cake.


also, you don't want to get busted with a fake sticker
