I bought my car in 2005 and they didn't even check the vin...just gave them the paperwork and paid the fees "based on the real purchase price". Maybe the DMV lady felt sorry for me that I was too honest to save money a based on a bogus purchase price and documentation.
I've switched my heads to the closed chamber heads (72 OC vs 70 CC) and swapped to a DuraSpark I ignition. I would assume that the motor would have better emissions??? I just heard that Kaleefornia is doing random smog (like sobriety) check points?
