    New old rigs question SMOG

    When ya gets back into the rig that's been back burnered for 5 years, do you get younger???

    Ok real ?
    How ruff is the carb 9 bay area counties engine swap protocol?
    For you lucky folks not familiar (sp) (LUCKY fukks)
    That's California aka the prk's worst idea EVER!

    1985 runner 22re odb1 swap into a 1983 minni .
    so not much crazy chitt as I have picked up on in years gone by.

    talkin to the reff for the appointment, he said I sound dialed in.
    The shop owner sounded good (not the state dickhead type )
    hope to do a one and dun

    Edit
    I have already done all the reading ,research, calibration verification via the fsm. So I have an 85 4runner under the tin.
    All the emissions stuff is present.
    All the electronic crap is present.
    The cel works.
    The ecm has zero codes.
    How was your interaction with the referee?
    When did you do it (year)?
    Anyone do one not at the j.c.? (They are using regular smog shops right now).

    Beleive engine has to be from same year or newer donor vehicle. If you are installing a different engine than what the vehicle originally had as an option, you have to go to a referee station and say you did an "engine change". They will inspect and certify (or not) and place a placard on the vehicle. I dont remember if every smog after that has to go to referee station for testing.

      hear it's a three peat type bullshitt deal!
      Once it's calibrated, the carb placard gives the smog guy the info to program the machine....
      Who's got stories???

        If you talked to the State already you might have made a mistake by getting it on their radar as a vehicle with issues. Ask around at clubs and find a shop in your area that “specializes” in how to get such vehicles to pass. It typically costs $100 – $200 extra. Bring cash.

          Not with an eng. Change!
          b.s. Smog testing and reports are ALOT harder to, fake these days!
          You're in the smog belt Valhalla, right!?

            I did a 4runner. 85 runner with a 95 4.3 vortec vin w. It will need to be the same weight class. No dump truck engine into a car. The same year or newer. Really you will need to read. The info is on the website. It was 3 visits for me, should have only needed to be two.

              Cant help, but for my own personal gain...

              Any vehicle 1975 and older is exempt from any and all smog/engine nonsense. Correct?

                You have to know a guy, be referred, etc. They don't exactly advertise. Guys that know how to do it are around down her in So Cal. I'm sure they're up there too. It gets done. The problem with that route is you have to fight the same fight every two years.

                  I went through it in 01 with a mustang engine in a bronco. Everything was there and it was pretty painless. I think he had me run and get a different valve cover breather before he would sign it off.

                    75 down is pre smog so far.
                    Payin $100.00 a year for smog????
                    that's more than the $8 the state gets every second year
                    HARD PASS!
                    once this one is certified it just goes to my $50.00 guy =$25 a year.
                    Once I find a pre smog titled body I might go to that...
                    Thanx Guy's

                      You are clueless. Don’t talk.

                        You can register it in a non smog county, that was fairly painless for me after I got my rig signed off by the ref. No smog for life.

                        It’s really not that difficult to understand.

                              Could you do a little write up of the process. I'm sure it will come up again and with smog in the title will be easily searchable.
