Went to smog my NA-turbo converted 83 280ZX yesterday, tech said he needed an EO number for the AFM.
The one I got with the motor is a Standard Motor Products reman unit, the sticker is scratched and the only visible number is MF0412S ... I looked it up online there's one on rock auto MF0412 that is the only replacement AFM I can find for the turbo motor.
It seems this part never had a CARB exemption... Can't find any information from the manufacturer either.
It seems the only CA-legal MAF is one with a NISSAN part number on it, as none of the aftermarket have EO exemption for them.
I have a source for a good Nissan one, just wanted to start discussion on this.
When I took it to the BAR ref last year to check everything he said it was all OK no problem ... I guess they're getting even more strict with smog lol.
And it seems my cat has been scraping on the ground and the EO number is rubbed off. Have to get a new CAT ???
I think I'm going to take the car back to skyline & have the REF pass it.
Sucks cause my car passes emissions just fine and runs exactly like stock. (just ignore the disconnected boost controller over there)
