I have a 1995 Gti VR6 (OBD 1) with, 268 Shrick cams, lightened fly wheel, lightened and balanced crank, forged rods, giac chip, intake, exhaust, spark plugs and wires.
MY car will not pass smog it is 7-9 points high on hydro-carbons, any suggestions or tips.
My question is what would my car run like if i put a stock VR6 chip back in the ecu? and would it help me pass smog?
Has to be smog test only in SoCal

Well, with the high hydrocarbon concentration, you're running rich...
And willing to bet the ECU chip is you're culprit; they program those to run on the greedy fuel side of things...
Swap out the chip for the OEM one and see where that puts you.

http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif .. I would take it easy on your car because of all your mods and you might not get the fuel you need if you really drive it hard on the stock chip.. Just swap it out, drive over there, get smogged and then trade your chips again.. I'm almost certain you'll pass that way
