I read today that there is no smog for Duratecs until 2010. Is this the same for a 2003 Duratec PZEV. Or just 2005 models.

haha...yeah. Cali's got gas that is supposed to burn cleaner too. I would check your state/county's guidelines for E-check for more info on that. I know here in C-bus, we don't have emissions testing.

supposedly CA is goin to use the new OBD IV's comp to monitor. So It is probably just cars with OBD IV. They can even locate your car!

IDK what you mean but if that is sarcasm, ok. If you dont mind the crack dealer stealing your car or raping your wife and he gets off scott free. Then you wouldn't change your mind, but wait what could you be doing in your car that is illegal. PARANOID!! Who cares quit taking the privacy act so far. Dont forget you are an american and you are supposed to protect you country not create a blanket of excuses for the feds not to watch those that dont give a crap about you or your country.

It's not called the privacy act, it's called the Constitution of the United States of America, I suggest you read it, specifically the 4th amendment. So why exactly should my rights be infringed because of the minority of criminals in this country?
The constitution applies to CITIZENS regardless of whether said citizen is a criminal or not. If you prefer to not have these protections, then I suggest a short trip to Cuba or one of those other fine socialist countries where no one has rights. We have rules to follow and so does the government and it's hired henchmen. Maybe you should bitch at them for not following their rules. It is their actions that get criminals off on technicalities, not a problem with the Constitution. And personally, I don't give a shit what substance an ADULT chooses to put in their body. As long as they aren't dealing it to kids, it's none of my business (or yours) what a consenting adult does in the privacy of their home.
