obd2...
not 100% positive but i think it is a possibility to put an auto ecm on a manual if you do something to trick the computer to think the transmission is always in drive. otherwise the ecm thinks your in park all the time and you have a terrible power loss. i know i read this somewhere on someone's swap thread but i can't remember for the life of me who it was or how he "tricked" the ecm.

The issue with California C.A.R.B is that the ECU has to be the same as the transmission. You can't jerry rig anything, all emissions equipment has to be there and working, as it as from factory, from the original vehicle.

i wanna know how they are going to tell that it's an auto or manual ecm?most inspection places around here(PA) barely know how to operate a pen, nuch less tell if all pieces of a vehicle are stock.
besides... i wasn't talking about the 50 state legality of it, that's for whoever to figure out, i was speaking from the physical possibility of the matter.

They hook into the obd2 port and also physically check it. They comb the motor. They want you to pass, so even if you do fail, they show you what you need to do to fix it.

Well that is reassuring, though I think I can do it right the first time. Do they charge to do a re-test?

Call your local CARB ref and ask, its been a while since I've used them, and idk if it is different for a truck. Chat them up, let them know what you want to do. Theyll give you info you need to know.

I Have nothing against California, other than the strictness of their emissions regulations, but I can see why they have them.

There is no reason for failing people over a visual inspection. If you motor is putting out the correct numbers it should matter how you have it set up.

Couldn't agree more. The only thing they should care about smog wise, is the emissions coming out the tailpipe.

They do sometimes check for smog equipment to see if it is intact, i.e. a Catylitic Converter. But, they wouldn't know what to check for in an A.I.R. Injection system due to the many types that are installed on the many brands of vehicles, or if the PCM (ECM) is the proper unit for the vehicle.
