    I have an 86 blazer with a defunct carberated 305. I want to replace it with a 350 TBI or TPI. Are there any problems with getting emissions acceptance in Colorado if I do this?

    No, you just have to run the emmisions control stuff off of a TBI truck, which is my case was the evap canister, cat, fuel restrictor, etc, probably less than you have now. On a gas truck, they may not even notice, I had to get mine recertified since mine was a conversion from diesel. Call the emmisions tech place at 303-744-2442 ext.3 for all the info, they are quite helpful and they are the ones who call the shots as far as conversions are concerned.
