Hey guys, have had my Magnum Powers supercharger on my truck for many years and have never had an issue, but today, this station that has always done my smog, decided to raise the red flag and fail my truck because the blower says Mangum Powers. The owner was one of those know it alls, "it doesn't say Eaton!" Are you f'n kidding me...
Anyway, is there anybody in the SoCal area that has a Eaton sitting on the self that will let me borrow it for a week to get the visual to pass. I already talked to another shop and said they wouldn't have failed me, but since this station failed me, I have to go back to them to get the truck passed, BUT next time, i will go to the other shop I talked to... I am in need of someones help, so please help a bother out!!! Thanks guys
I COPIED AND PASTED WHAT I WROTE ON POST #29, READ BELOW FOR MY 2019 SMOG UPDATE
Bringing this back up to date,
So, since I failed visual two years ago, California was so generous to automatically flag the truck this year to see the referee! Never ever heard of this until now.
Either way, I took my truck down to San Diego this morning to get it looked over, and do I mean looked over! They go through this thing like if you were going to the doctor for a full check up!
Long story short, I failed, AGAIN!
This time they failed me for the SBTB and C&L plenum... WTF! The only good news, they didn't fail the magnum powers supercharger. I guess me grindin the emblem off the front and touching up the paint was enough to trick them on that part.
Soooo, now I am in need of a stock TB and Plenum, by any chance does someone have one laying around I can borrow, or even purchase for the cheap lol, I am so close to putting my poor truck back to stock and just go about my life, this California smog is just getting harder to get by with any type of mods that make these vehicles even more fun to drive.
Pretty soon, all V8s will be banned from the damn state...
Well guys, get at me if you have something that can help me out... Thanks!
