what is the number to call to get an appointment? at Contra Costa?
you say they didnt even check the ECU? i have a JDM ECU and i am trying to find a US one that will let me pass. I might go there if they dont check my ECU that is the only thing holding me back.

I use mobil one as well in my y7-t but it makes my car burn oil... I've had three different motors D and B series. All of them would start to eat oil whenever I went to a full synthetic.... Back to Castrol GTX and the problem would dissappear...

hmm.. i never smell any burning oil nor do i see any smoke other than condensation smoke coming out the back of my exhaust. i've been using it for almost a year now, and i hope it doesnt start to burn oil either.

I made an appointment for Contra Costa tomowrow. Hopefully all goes well. I had an appointment today at Fremont, but the guy wont even look at it b/c he says I'm too low for the above ground dyno. (I would of raised it, but im not on coilovers, so that wasnt an option) The only reason I considered Contra Costa or Evergreen was b/c they both had in ground dynos. Hopefully all goes well tomowrow. Thanks for your input





What's the phone number for the referee smog in contra Costa college I need to make an appointment? Please do you know the address too?
