has anyone on the board gotten their car smogged yet? especially in california?
there must be a slew of cars due for now or soon.
i'm curious about those who have aftermarket exhausts, software tune. please chime in.
I was just wondering the same thing today as I drove by a smog check station. Having seen how rough they are when they shove the probe up the pipe, I'm a little concerned about having my shiny tips scratched up.
i know my original post has mold growing on it... but ok now i may have an issue. got a message from my local dealer and it states that the car sent a "tele service request" to them that a "statutory emissions test" is due.
anyone know what the heck this is?
i've have at an aftermarket cat-back system, with no 2ndary cats..
by the way, has anyone had to smog their car yet w/out 2ndary cats?
I don't know exactly what the OBD II diagnostics is measuring/sensing. I have yet to see and adequate explanation. Obviously if the check engine light is on the tech. can visually see that. If the check engine light is off because of the aftermarket tune, is the OBD II still sensing a fault condition in which case you will fail an OBD II emissions test or does the aftermarket tune fool the OBD II diagnostics into making a positive or pass reading inspite of primary and or secondary catalyst removal? Inquiring minds would like to know.:dunno:
