You beat me to it. Lol. I was going to make a thread.
Washington state is shutting down the emission program in 2020. The reason for this is because our air quality has improved. The cars being built are cleaner and it's not necessary to check, they will focus on vehicles at the the factory.
My question is, if you're swapping in a V8 in a V6 ranger do you still need the ref?
It will be interesting to see if Cali and NY eventually join the USA in general.
I've heard Alaska is near doing it, understandable less vehicles, less emissions.
California IS my concern, I'll probably be dead before the emission laws go away.
A Roadside Check is not good either, maybe the States will go back to a Safety Check Inspection to make their money !
I would think if you make the conversions and get it checked for emissions by yourself, then you should pass.
As I always say, "If you pass the emissions levels for your year vehicle what difference does it make what motor you have" !
Hoping but not expecting !
