    I haven't really known DF that long. A couple of years. I just traded the ocassional email with before that.

    mlc, that's right.

    It's not based on the emissions at all, but what "approved parts" I use. Which is BS! Say I build an all-aftermarket engine for my 1970 <whatever car> - aftermarket block, heads, intake, exhaust. I could EFI tune it and make it meet emissions standards of a car in the mid 1990s pretty easily, and have it make 500 N/A hp (or 1000+ with boost), but it would still be illegal to drive on the road.


    The Crusher Camaro story is pretty awesome. Rebeldryver or someone who has been with DF from farther back than me, should be able to tell it better...

    Yep, there is a visual inspection too. They check to see if you have all the parts you're supposed to have. Just one more BS way of screwing people that has nothing to do with clean air. Think money for the state and you'll get the picture.

    You dont need all kinds of aftermarket parts. Most just need a tune up by a qualied tech, and an understanding of the combustion process! My 78 454 suburban with no cats can pass NY for the 1990 standards! with nothing more than a curve kit and a eddy 1406.

    the point I was making is this: if I want to build something with Edelbrock heads and intake, EFI or carb, and use aftermarket parts (for which there is no CARB exemption), the rule should simply be - if it blows clean, I can run it. Which is not the case now.
    Not from California and not sure I understand...so if it blows cleaner than the standard for a particular year but doesn't have the Clean Air Gestapo-mandated parts, then it's a fail in any case?????
