Anyone taken their smog checks on 13's before? Reason I ask is cuz they put u on that machine and make u drive and with the cadillac digital dash being off theres no degree of accuracy so its kinda gonna mess everything up i would imagine? I put new cats on it cuz the old ones were plugged up and all smog equipment is present but i dunno about the 13's and the dash being like 10 mph off

Brent, Massachusetts is almost as bad as CA when it comes to emissions.. I don't think that's going to throw things off that bad though. Just make sure you blast the car down the freeway for a good drive before going for emissions. it should pass.

If the sniffer is anything like over here they just give it gas and watch the computer screen and run the car at different RPMs even though the wheels may be on the rolling pads they do that to simulate driving the car under load.

or

How hard is it to buy a sticker in CA and have someone put another car on for you but run your info?

Actually, I don't think it will matter. They do most of them by RPM rather than MPH. :)

The computer screen on the smog machine shows the mph and the rps and that is what the technian is looking at not your dash whe he is flooring your pedal, he only checks your dash to make sure the check engine light is working properly At least thats what I notice when I took my coupe in couple months ago

you be ah'ite :cool:

umm bro i live in cali too and they didn't put my car on no machine....i take my shit with the 13's on everytime....they put a thing in your exaust and some shit on the plug or plug wire and they rev your shit up to simulate driving.....then they put it back down to idle to get a read out of the emissions passing through ur car..also they check to make sure your ignition is stock and that all vacume and smog lines are hooked up and running..that is visual inspection...some places don't even trip on the visual..they just go on the computer read out of emissions...

Over here you can't even have knock offs on if you plan on passing, only older vettes are allowed since they came stock.
