You can also see the exhaust in the Feb.2004 issue of Chevy High Performance as there is a feature article on our Duramax products. I will tell the web-site manager about having the wrong picture up for the D-max, thanks.

Just got my first diesel so this is new to me - I'm also in Cali - are you sure they don't smog test diesels here? That'd be great news if it's correct - one less thing to worry about.
I just assumed they did smog test diesels since Cali has laws for everything and it's a bunny-hugger's paradise. Plus I see diesels dumping a ton of smoke out the back end when the driver gets on the pedal, so I'd presumed they weren't the most eco-friendly engines out there.
So really, no smog testing?!!!??
