UPDATE New cat installed at muffler shop, part is Catco #912007 , cost $498 total.

Smogged the van and failed for 2 reasons (ASM Emissions passed with flying colors)
1. Had a hose labeled "Heater Hose" going from intake (before throttle body) to somewhere above the passenger valve cover ("Wrong hose")
2. The tech had doubts about that new cat, (need to have muffler shop call in tomorrow).

Oh California just let me be :driving: , well the fix for #1 is simple. Went down to the LAPS and bought a "crankcase vent hose" https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/c/pr ... rs1/cv1932 This one has "PCV Hose" written on it and this should be the correct fix.
