I assume this has been covered but I am a newbie here and not sure where it is covered...

Ok, I stopped by a smog shop to get my 2002 F-350 4x4 Diesel smog checked and the guy would not even start after he looked in my engine compartment and saw I had a cold air intake and said where is your ######## sticker that states this intake is legal? I said what are you talking about and he proceded to tell me to go put the stock equipment back on it and come back before he will even attempt it?

Ok, So I am not going to do that.. any suggestions of a smog shop in San Diego, CA. that understands us diesel owners???

please help??

A bunch of BS!!

Today, I just smogged (passed) my 02 7.3 with no problems. Has AFE intake, hypertech programmer...not even programmed for stock, magnaflo exhaust.

I came across this document and it clearly states (around page G-6) that diesel intakes, exhaust system (that dont affect smog requirements and such are not necessary to check for CARB exemption.

Maybe we need to educate these smog guys as to what thier job really is!! My guy didnt even to the "smoke" test.....he said whats the point, its not really a test, just his opinion!!

Good luck
