failed smog today !

well by a technicality , so i went to smog it today and it ends up failing why ? the smog guy says because i don't have carb eo numbers for the plenum and cai .
wow really I'm thinking, then i ask you guys cannot look it up in the system? btw both are carb legal and everything else passed. he tells me, we have to have the number to look it up and bringing in a printed piece of paper with the number on it won't work either i have to call the manufacture and get the sticker with it . i bought the car with all of this stuff on it and it passed last year in march when i bought it . so frustrating that i have to waste more time ,gas to smog it again . after i call and hopefully they can send out this sticker.

That happened to me in Cali when I lived there with my Honda. It is very frustrating. Like you said. Call and have them resend the stickers. Keep them in your glove box so they don't eventually fall off on the plenum and CAI. What happened to mine was it was my first time smogging a car in Cali. I had all these mods and no Exempt stickers. I also threw the original parts in the dumpster months before. So I had to spend close to $400 to get the original parts from a junk yard and put them back on and do it all over again. From then on I just paid the shop to pass the car.
