CA requires that vehicles less than 35 years old pass a smog exam every two years. All smog equipment must be OEM or C.A.R.B. certified. For Jeeps with carbs, this means that we must retain the Carter BBD carb or upgrade to TBI.
There are a lot of people who curse the state for these tight laws, but I have lived in SoCal my entire life and am old enough to remember Smog Alerts when everyone was advised to stay inside, kids could not go outside during recess, and you couldn't see the mountains 30 minutes away through the dark haze. I developed asthma in my 40s from growing up during this era. Remember the pictures they showed of China during the Olympics? That's what LA used to be like in the early 70s. The skies are relatively clean now because of the smog laws, so I know they work and I respect them.
