If you want to go through the hassle of doing the change right away, smog testing shouldn't be difficult. Probably best to establish residency first, then smog. If you don't/can't pass go to a gold shield testing station, go through the process and have the state pay for your smog repairs.
Too Much, shadow, you mean someone else can pay for my repair ifn it dont pass???!!! hey alfa forum members, why didnt yous mention this before....LOL!
