Passing Emissions - 383 stroker

I currently have collector insurance on my 73 C10. The insurance limits the amount of miles I can drive every year to 1,000 miles. The truck is way too fun to drive to be limited to only 1,000 miles a year. Is there any way I can get a 383 with 10:1 compression to pass emissions so I can drive it more often?

Try a different insurance company. My agent has got mean "agreed value coverage" policy for my truck that has NO mileage limits at all. I just had to swear that I don't drive it to work. I'm insured for $13,500.00, no deductible full coverage and I pay about $350.00/Yr. Of course I'm in Michigan, but Michigan is about 3rd highest premium in the nation.

Since you didn't tell us where you live, we can't answer that. Emissions inspection requirements vary by state, county, and city. Keep in mind that since a 383 was never factory produced or emissions certified by GM, technically it will never be legal. Can you get it past most state emissions test stations? Probably. Again, it depends on where you live and what the local inspection requirements are.

I've never had to go thru inspection cuz TN doesn't require it,so,i'm not sure about what all is involved,but,as I understand it,you should only have to meet requirements for your specific year model & drive train.Also have no specifics on your engine & parts combo.If nothin very drastic,I would think you could tune it to meet 1973 year model requirements long enuff to get thru inspection.W/O disassembling your engine,inspectors have no way of knowing a 383 from a 350.Again,this is just my opinion based on what I know of the process.

They make additives that claim to help with passing emissions.I have no idea if they work or not.I prolly wouldn't wanna take a chance on runnin it thru a good engine tho.No tellin what's in it.Do they also do a visual to see if all model specific emission controls are in place?

Insurance is going to be the least of your problems. Go to an emissions testing facility in person and ask about the requirements before you take the truck and see if its doable or a lost cause. Then you wont have to waste money on insurance if it won't be possible for it to pass inspection.

exempt

I think if you check, you can be exempt from emission testing if the vehicle is registered and insured as a collectable. Arizona pre-'75 exemption is in place pending EPA approval. See this;

Option 1) If the legislation has been approved to exempt his vehicle(pre-'75) from emissions testing, then he can insure it as a daily driver and drive it all he wants.

Option 2) If he REGISTERS it as a collectible and gets his COLLECTIBLE INSURANCE through a different company with no mileage limitations, he can drive it all he wants and again he is exempt from emissions testing.

Do you understand it now?
