They they make a purely subjective call on if the smoke is too opaque. A tune will likely increase the amount of smoke at full throttle.

If nothing else, get your smog inspection on a very windy day.

What did you do to your SMB today?

Big day today.
Installed rear airbags (courtesy of Spomo1).
Installed new speakers in the front doors.
Fixed a broken handle on the 60 door.

Popped in a late model dog house console, replacing my 2000 model. I had rented a new 15 passenger a while back and decided the new console layout was far better than mine.

Feeling like I've got a new van in the driveway

Nice! Just installed front airbags in mine last night, and am doing the rears tonight or tomorrow, so your post is inspirational.

I didn't know newer doghouses could fit the older vans. Kicking myself because I saw one at the Pick-n-Pull a few weeks ago and am sure I could have gotten it cheap.

My last plastic GoRhino broke when I bottomed out at Desert Center so I found a shiny replacement

Replaced the house battery and repaired my Honda generator. Note to self: Do not drop spark plug into the case of the generator.

Replaced my smaller incandescents with these LEDs. Work great and provide plenty of light.

Also purchased these smaller ones as well but they're noticeably dimmer.

Today I put a picture of my Sprinter on the TomTom to follow around.

Re: What did you do to your SMB today?

I'm taking care of any Stiction I might have! That plus did an oil change and replaced my full flow filter. I replace the bypass filter every other time. I'm now just dump new oil in and replace filters in every 5 - 6K miles. I also get a Blackstone report most oil changes.

I put my awning on with my new Z brackets and added a second ladder to the driver side since my awning went all the way to the end of the van.
