Some States don't have the laws.....yet.

If they do this is still always a choice by the driver if he wants to risk the fines or not.

Here, its 360 bucks a pop for removing emissions equipment. There are no yearly inspections but the environmental guys patrol on the streets.

I run the EGR on my 76 pickup and its no problem. If it helps the engine from detonating, I'm all for it. Of coarse running a TPI hides it nicely.

So that brings up something else. Is it an eye sore for your hot rod? I will be remote mounting one on my 41 Chrysler. Our law dictates that any emissions equipment that came with a donor motor must still be attached (or an equal substitute) to it.
