My 79 has no cats.....my monte has no cats.........my S10 has no cats....In CT if you register your 20 yr old vehicle with "Early American" plates, there is no emission test. And she wonders why everything I have is at least 20....

Nothing like spending $400 and losing a ton of performance.:let_it_all_out:
Most cars built in 75 are now exempt from emissions testing.
Spend the $400 on Beer.:beer:

Hey, Why bother if your State doesn't require it. To me, you're just wasting money & time. Eliminated mine off long time ago, and disconnect the smog pump too, if you got one....

The way it is in CT if you take your veh to a repair shop and it originally came with cats, they are not supposed to do exhaust work if no cats are present. Gotta do it yourself.

ok so if i do it myself (Like i originally planned) i was just going to buy the pipe and bring it in to have it bent. I am really picky on how i want the exhaust tips to stick out of the back, so i am afraid to buy an exhaust kit because i know i wont be happy. Thought???? Suggestions????:poke:

You could always carry a cat litter pan in the bed to keep things tidy! Remember years ago when Esso stations handed out tiger tails to customers that hung on the gas filler door? Big kitty.:poke:

It's amazing how one dork lawyer(Ralph Nader) and one government agency (epa) can ruin The complete American economy.
I blame Ralph Nader for the junk we drive today.
His so called Safety concerns (really money concerns),by suing Gm,brought about the plastic and Styrofoam automobile construction of today.
I protest by driving cars without cats...I love cats...Dead ones!:texas::beer:

Corvairs were great cars as long as you kept good oil in them. I put clutches in a few. They were fun to drive, especially the Corsa. Nader is a bum.
