Smog is a success!!!! The PO had adjusted the mixture to an extremely rich setting to compensate for a poor running motor.

Problem you ask... It was the two orange colored seals that are inside the intake between the turbo and the intercooler. One was cut and the other was almost non-existent. $4.00 for seals. Also, a slow adjusting O2 sensor.

Then, it only failed smog becuase of NOX, so swapped out a catalytic converter (so generesly donated by another pelicany) and it was as clean as my 06 (HEMI) Jeep Grand Cherokee.

I would love to know who was working on this before. Now, she purs like a kitten and shows better fuel economy as well.

Hope this can help someone out there. Thanks to all who replied and offered suggestions.
