Then he told me that in 4 or 5 years when i would have to get my first smog inspection, the smog laws would be changed again, possibly in my favor.

I'll likely go ahead & install it for now, as it came in the box, although i wanted to go with threaded hose fittings
Just keep the original hose and put it on for inspections, should not be a big deal?
