"Not every repair, no matter how well done, qualifies a technician for the Top Tech
award," said Cagle
"For example I got a submission just today where the emissions went from 225 grams to 20 grams.
I consider that significant," Cagle
said, "however, if the reduction was 22 grams to 14 grams, no."
Also, any missing information on the form will disqualify the repair," Cagle
The format he
is looking for should be standard practice for any shop that does emissions repair.
It also asks for the customer's name and phone number so CDPHE
can ensure that customer satisfaction has been met, Cagle
