    More than likely it did . Is this engine original ? It is supposed to be on the drivers side manifold near the bottom . It should be a 305 if its a stock 4bbl car . Hard to believe but 73 perent of the firebirds came with 4bbl carbs that year , and they were only available on 305's . 350's got fuel injection /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Well an 02 sensor problem will put it in the wrong mode . It will go rich to get you home . The exhaust will of course change things some , if the cat is gone the sensor may not get enough heat , Dorian may know /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    CCC uses O2 in cars.
