Yeah, that surprised me when I looked it up. It's four years if there's a change of ownership. Not sure of the logic there?

The smog check also includes a tailpipe emission analysis. Smog check places are not allowed to also make repairs so, if it fails, you have to go somewhere else to have it repaired, then pay for a new test.
i bought my tundra in 2004 and it's never failed a smog check. ditto for the 2006 4runner

Some states' extent of checking emission control systems is to check for trouble codes or recent resets. 8 years is a long time.

As far as tampering, unless you are visible blowing nasty stuff out your exhaust, you won't get caught unless a mechanic dimes you out.
my guess is most cars tampered with are bought used (by young guys) and will need to be smogged regularly

But what kind of a smog test do they do? As I mentioned earlier, some states just check for trouble codes and call it good if there are no codes thrown.

See earlier posts - they inspect all of the emission system components and also do a tailpipe emission analysis by hooking up the car to a machine with a sensor in the tailpipe.

Our old Honda and Lexus always passed. My old V12 Jags though were another story...

they check emissions with computer and a probe up the tailpipe. the findings go directly to the state. c'mon man this is california :LOL:

Same as the car... but I see where you're going...
So the cat is a jag-you-are? I've always said jag-war, not jag-wire. But I'm from the Northeast.

What do you call a long sandwich?

Yes, unless it has melanistic coat coloration then I'd call it a black panther. We have black house panthers...

Not sure where you're going with the sandwich unless you're seeing how far we can hijack this thread before @Montanan notices, LOL!

Philly cheese steak? Torpedo? Sub?

Ha! I grew up in the Philly area and we called them hoagies there.

I remember when I first moved to northern NJ and started working in NYC, I went to a deli in NYC and asked for a hoagie. "A hoagie??? Where the hell are you from, out west???", said the guy behind the counter. I then knew they are subs or heros in the NYC area.

I now live in MA. Just about everywhere in New England, they are called grinders.

Yep, first 18 years of life just north of Philly in Langhorne
And it has been most grating in the 36 years since moving up here to order "grinders" (hold the 'r' please) and a "steak and cheese". But I most miss buying a bag of soft pretzels from random guys at traffic lights in Philly lol. And Butterscotch Krimpets.
Not sure the need for more power in a 2.5 Sport though.

Ya know, we do have a handy off-topic discussion forum for topics just like this! And though you guys may not believe it, I'm pretty sure most of our site's visitors come to the site's other forums to read info about cars.

Just sayin'.
