The main thing is it has to be same model year or newer. In your case with a 95, you basically need a 95 cause everything newer will be OBDII which can be done but not as easy.

You also cant do the B20. There is some crazy law about truck motors in cars.

Im not sure how often we go. New cars arent as frequent.

We used to do the sticker thing too, but they caught on and now its ran with the part brand and the eo and all kinds of bull that all has to match up before they even do the acutall test.

Hope they cant hear my cams when I have to go, lol.
