Here's a pic of the cage going back in....Pretty interesting doing all this Samurai stuff by myself over all these years....Have had to be VERY creative.

melbakid is an unknown quantity at this point
Did you by chance ask the Ref if you could relocate the vin tag to a location that would make it visible for future inspections? I ask because in two years you will have to go through this again. The smog station will have to verify the vin again.

No common sense in those Referee Smog Nazi's. Most of them act as though they are the right hand of God almighty himself. One of the reasons I left Kalifornika!

It's been a while. To answer your question, I did not have the VIN tag relocated. I pulled the cage, let the Smog Ref inspect the VIN w/out the obstruction of the cage, to his satisfaction.

I passed the inspection for a properly done motor conversion in the State of California. I have the official California State Bureau of Automotive Registered Foil Identification Sticker placed in the driver side Door Jamb.

It's from here on out always to be known as a legally completed 1.6 16v engine swap.

No Need to verify the VIN# again. The VIN# is located on the Sticker itself in the Door Jamb.

Photobucket decided to hold the pics hostage and demand a ransom.
They began charging the user a huge fee to "host" pictures.

For some reason though the pictures are back?? At least I can see them again, not sure about everyone else??

Very good to know!

Just glad we can see the pics again. It really helps the thread immensely



BTW, I have done some stuff to the engine since the last post. Not a lot, just added a GM 105amp Alt setup instead of the stock Sidekick Alt.

I have just been driving it, and enjoying it! It's passed Smog now 2x at a regular smog station, no where special. I can take it anywhere just like a regular, normal, manufactured sedan or SUV.
