SMOG! San Diego Help!

Can anyone recommend a smog shop. I went to one in PB today and this guy was tripping about a disconnected nitrous kit. Wasn't even tapped into the intake or a throttle plate.

OBD2 and visual only...No more roller test.

Not sure how that screws anyone as they already did an OBD2 scan anyway...The new smog laws I believe took effect on January 1st.

It's not just that after the summer they are also cross referencing ecu codes to a datbase for your VIN # so if there are any changes its a fail

We'll have to see what really gets implimented as they stated it's the same test as many other states run and I don't believe any of them do that extensive of a test. Then again, in CA anything is possible. I guess we'll have to see what happeds when the first people go in for the new testing.

I can't see failing a car that may have ben tuned that previously passed the sniffer test well within the limits. Also, with CARB parts such as superchargers or even shorty headers a tune would be ideal to optimize the set up and prevent conditions such as running lean which the stock tune couldn't optimize. I'd venture a guess that there are many enthusiasts who have tuned vehicles so the numbers of potential "fails" could be huge. Also, what would the remedy be on a fail for flags? Who/where would the stock tuned be flashed back from? Old school smog testing was pretty much mechanical and resetting flags after replacement in its most basic sense.

You possibly failed the visual test so there was no need to continue. I would try another shop and see what they say.

Just got my smog notice and it was a standard smog. There is new category which is Star inspection. I think mine still goes on the rollers even though its an 06. We will see when I take it in.

Well it was still rollers for me. I do not think they have updated to the OBDII only test.

Lol, where are you getting this info? is it from an official source or internet speculation ? what ecu codes specifically your source is talking about ?

Cool thing i don't have to do smog until next year, so hopefully by then all this little quirks would be worked out. Some cars are getting smogged the old way because the new system is barely getting there, how could they have the logistic needed to cross reference PCM OS's to a vin number, and CVN information after that, to know the calibration was modified, by the summer ?
