Wow-the car is transformed!

Car looks awesome.

Really like the cockpit.....

I see your smogging plans changed smiling smiley

..

Thanks.

Yep the smog plans changed, that was actually one of the more difficult hurdles of the build (smog ref laughed at me when he saw the car with the diesel, family in TN wanted to register it for me but than changed their mind) but it ended up being pretty easy.

I’m guessing he’s wondering what’s up with your exterior theme?

Black and white was too boring. I had the red and gold left over from previous race cars.

It’s covered in skateboard crap because 1. I manage a skateboard shop 2. The owner sponsors me via providing a place to build the car which I’m grateful for 3. I’m also grateful for skateboarding in general because it was the only thing I had growing up that I learned to be fast and fearless with.

If it passes ARA’s standards and I like it, I could care less about what people think how it looks. Build a car that makes YOU smile

Totally agree!

Build the car the way you want it.

Good luck and I’ll be watching to see how you and the car do(in hopefully quite a few events).

Been driving the car more, still not a serious amount of miles. I trust the engine fully but I am putting the new diff and trans in now so when that’s done it’ll be 500 light driving miles and than I’ll give it a good shakedown at Hollister

Hollister is an orv park- right?

And since we were talking about smog, apparently I haven’t smogged a car in California in quite some time.

Had to go get one the other day and thought the guy was up to shenanigans since he didn’t put my car on the dyno or put a sniffer in the exhaust.

Of course I happily said nothing, paid the man and took my “passed smog” paperwork to AAA to get my tags.

Looked up online when I got home and see that for a few years now -post 2000 Car’s only get a visual test and computer plug-in now.

That’s interesting.

I’m wondering how a re-flashed e c u , (obviously re-flashed to stock for the smog test )will pan out.

Or engine internals -compression changes ,cam changes etc.

I guess if your computer doesn’t throw a code -should be good to go right?

Yup - Hollister is an OHV park.

As far as smog goes, if they dont catch the ECU reflash or other things it's fine. I was thrown off recently when I smogged my C30 and there was no tailpipe test.

I'm pretty surprised by that because there are ways you can trick the ECU if you dont even have a cat.
