  2. Failed Smog - High NOx

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi all, I recently purchased a 78 Spider that did not pass smog (California). It looks like the previous owner tried getting it tuned but it still failed. The results were: My car @15mph: 8.8% CO_2, 5.3% O_2, 246 HC, 4.72% CO, 427 NO. Max to pass @15mph: 222 HC, 1.41 CO, 1396 NO. My car @25mph...
  3. Is there a difference in smog equipment for CA '85/'86s

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    Does anybody have information on whether California GTV6's had different equipment for smog than cars sold in other states? I'm looking for a good GTV6 (and perhaps an older Alfa for my father who owned a Berlina for 19 years from new) and wondering if I can consider cars from out of state. I...

    Alfa Romeo Topics Not Covered Elsewhere
    I like this car, daily driver, owned four years, about 60,000 miles are mine. Passed CA smog today. The S-3 L-jet is a great system. The numbers show the cat maybe a little weak but have two years to worry about that. PS - added plug pix for reference
