Welcome to the ORG, BTW!!
In 2010, California started to 'smog' diesel powered vehicles. It consists of a visual inspection (supposed to see that all the part that are supposed to be there, are there.) If there are aftermarket parts, they need to have a CARB EO number associated with it in order to pass. If any components are missing, the truck won't pass.
They also do a "smoke" test to see that it only smokes for a certain amount of time and a certain distance from the vehicle.
Reality, unless you have truck with a DPF, these tests really don't do anything for the actual emissions you put out.
What part of CA are you from?
