I don't know. From what I've read in this NG, it had something to do with
guys having their codes cleared and then passing the smog tests. That
doesn't sound very realistic to me cause I thought they checked for more
than a light in the dash. I haven't been out that way yet, but they do have
their own set of rules for smog control. I wonder sometimes just how much
of a difference has it made for the past 25 years or so to have "Calif
Specs" versus what's good enough for the other 49. They do still have a
smog problem so there are probably some who want even tougher pollution
