RKCWLER He hasn't done any fishing yet. I hope someday to get up there when they have a really good salmon run.

Ditchdoc It sucks when you go on a first hunt and get skunked. How is he doing in the salmon run? I mean if he fishes.

I believe they are similar. The more nice things you buy for your jeep, the more it wants.
My brother moved to Scappoose, Oregon A few months ago. He just went on his first elk hunt. But didn't get anything.

And those are the little tricks I learned growing up lol you can hide stuff with just the scanner test.

lol oh you can but most the time tuners will disable a sensor or something and the check engine light wont come on but it still throws a code. A good tuner/tune can make or break you

I guess you could sort of say that. I mean, what do you mean by having fun? Most of it depends on your smog tech.

So I guess you could say ca made a good decision because some cars regardless of how good a condition they're in are borderline with emissions based on how the cars built. A great example is the 4.0 many of us have.

Turns out California is starting a new program and this shop just happened to have the new system in place.
This is how NC does their OBD-2 (96 and up) emissions testing. It's easy as hell to simulate certain things with resistors to no run cats and keep the EVAP system from going crazy with a fuel cell. That's really good news for me lol. My concoction of '03 and '10 fuel system parts would raise some eyebrows lol

I hear that's the trick when it's running a bit rich and the opposite if it's running lean since a lean condition already heats things up on the cat
