Emissions hahaha thats funny I love it when I buy a vehicle and go to transfer the title and the 18 year old blonde idiot says in her little immature voice. "Your up to emission standards right? So I don't have to go check?" haha Minnesota 1 California 0 hahaha
I drove around in my 87 K-5 Blazer with no cat converter for about a year, I got pulled over for noise violation since the exhaust ended right there before the cat and all he said was "I have to pull you over since there was complaints, rev your engine for me." "Nice exhaust work, have a nice day." AMAZING!
Hey, and not all of us emissions guys are bad, I used to be a manager at the Gateway Clean Air Program doing emissions test here in STL. Great job. Not nearly as strict as CA though, atleast in terms of emissions output standards. Got to drive some unbelievable cars...in fact, you wouldn't believe me if I told you some of the vehicles I've operated on a dynomometer.

I'm near Detroit.
I grew up in Ohio - emissions state. The cars had to get checked every other year. One year less than a week after passing emissions, my muffler fell off my Jeep. Just fell off and plopped in my front yard. It got a little louder, but I just ran it like that for a few months. My 4-cyl Wrangler needed all of the help it could get.
I am close to Beaumont Texas in a little town called Groves. I will post some pics tomorow because it is dark right now. I just got it back from paint shop last friday so it is looking good except for the tires.
