There's been more than a few threads alluding to the fact that smog inspections for our diesels are coming, if not here already. They're all over the place, so I thought I'd throw out a thread to discuss what we're up against, or will be shortly.
Here in California, it looks like we're getting smog checks in 2010, though I've also heard it will be delayed until 2011, because as soon as the Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) came up with the program, people started asking questions they didn't have the answers for. There is a website about the program, including a FAQ link. You can find that website here: Smog Link
Okay, most of us can agree, smog laws suck. That's not the issue here, we're going to be stuck with them. What can/are we going to do to work with these regulations. Some of us older guys have gone through this before, in building our street cars into higher performance vehicles, so it's not the end of the world. It can be done.
