I would double check the laws, but I am about 99% sure that it is 8 years until we need a smog. I have only seen two cats between the DP Pipe back, but for some reason I am thinking that there is a cat on the up too.Ya I live in cali. But if I dont get a smog for 8 years its not a big deal. so the only cats are on the down pipes (pipes meaning front and rear of the down pipe)?
Wow. Good think its something that will only need to be dealt with every 5 or so years.There's 2 cats in the DP and no cat in the up pipe. If you are catless you will fail smog. In CA they do a visual inspection before the test and if anything has been modified at all you fail right away. I thought it was 5 years before your first smog check but I might be wrong.
Yep it is in with your reg renewal that you get every year... one year (Either five or eight years out) it will be a required item for renewal...How do you know when you have to get a smog check? Are you sent a notice?
