I had to get the 'smog check' on my '03 to register it this year. It is a joke...$78 to visually inspect that the truck is stock, look at the tail pipe while the throttle is blipped. I wonder what happens if the 'smog technician' thinks a little soot is excessive? Would an after market air filter system fail you? Change the intake manifold and fail?
Impossing added regulation and costs on the public and on business is one of the main reasons California has 13% unemployment...this diesel smog check will cost California millions and have almost no impact on air quality.
