Uncle Ben, you'll get me to go to Bud's yet, won't you? Thanks for the cat tip as it may just be required.
I believe the test involves three screenings. If you decell everytime you might be jinxing yourself! I have also heard if they cannot verify your vehicle by clearly recording your license plate you will not qualify.

Then it must be that my plates haven't been caught because the 4Runner (which is 100% stock) has had emissions test every time it's eligible. Probably Adolf Air Care just toying with me just to piss me off. If so, I can actually respect that.

Please keep us posted Crash, as I suspect EGR related malfunction is plaguing my 3FE...

TJ, the EGR tests are very simple to perform. Do you have an FSM? If not I "think" I can scan the tests and email them to you.

Here's the one from the 22R-E and 3VZ-FE to give you some reference. It's not tough and probably similar on the 3FE.

The 77exhaustq notes are very similar to the 3FE notes, just drop the 3,500 rpm test number to 2,500 for the 3FE.

Default Roadside testing

last month, for the FIRST TIME in my life, I have received a notice that I passed the roadside e-test and I didn't have to go to the station!

Sure it was in the MR-2 Spyder and not my truck, but it CAN work I guess.

I wasn't trying to pass the roadside e-test because my truck never passed even when I made a concerted effort to hit the roadside stations at the right time, right frequency, accelerating, blah blah blah.

It looks like you may need to be running REALLY clean to pass the roadside test. (The MR-2 Spyder is a ULEV rig)

X2 on what thefatkid wrote. EGR is all about NxOx. Stupid thing is, it is not an issue where we live due to our elevation. Higher combustion temps are what causes higher NxOx, and backing off on your timing may be the easiest way to pass, assuming your EGR is functioning as intended. I would look to these two areas before moving your registration.
