Catback exhaust, reflash or Accessport, underdrive pulley, K&N drop-in air filter, possibly black Samco intercooler hoses, are a few that shouldn't cause problems in CA.

What mods did you have on your car before returning it to stock?

To be clear, an Access Port technically isn't legal in CA, however it's nearly impossible for them to detect
