Once again that damn 2F barely squeaks by. I always get the same type of response from the shops when i take it in "Oh one of those engines" I swear if I don't have the V8 in it by 08 I'm going to non-op it.
I feel the pain. Took the FJ62 yesterday and failed (California). Apparently requires repairs up to $500 in repaires to make it pass and waivers that in excess of $500. The good news is that since it is TEST ONLY the state has a program that I can submit an application for and only pay a $100 deductible toward the $500 and will walk away with my certificate.
It's obvious that none or most of the auto manufactures didn't now $hit about emissions in the 80's. It's almost like the just tried to put every fishing lure and rubber hose they had on the engines in an effort to please the Man.
