    Purchased a used 2015 challenger hellcat a month and a half ago, dealership just called me and said that DMV is refusing it because it needs a smog check. Apparently they bought it out of state, Oregon to be specific. I'm in California. Hope this beast passes!

    It passed with flying colors. And just for the record, I'd rather live in California vs. 45 other US states. ;)

    Mine passed without any issues. That was ONE particular car that had set diagnostic codes. You will not pass smog without the PCM doing all the smog precondition checks and being code free. They do not even sniff the tail pipe any more. Just plug into the ALDL to make sure all is well. No codes assumes exhaust compliance.

    I would imagine that it would pass provided the catalytic converters are still there. California emissions used to be stand alone until several years ago when the federal government said that all states must have those same strict emission tests for inspections.
    positivity and seeing good things when things happen gives you the winning edge all the time.

    HCs are 50-state emissions compliant.

    I bought mine in MI and had to have smog check done to register it here in CA, with 6 miles on it.

    Any vehicle coming into CA from another state requires smog check, even if brand new.

    Cally is probably the only state where you yourself can smog a little grass but your cat can't smog any. :eek:
