    Got a 76 blazer with a 350 running dual's 2 1/2 with new 40 series flowmasters with not cats with a x pipe. I need to get this thin leagal and I am running high on CO and HC. Need recommandations to solve this problem. I am getting tired of farting around with this problem. Looking for a good shop that can help me pass or an individual that can swing by and give me a hand and we can work out something for payment or trade. I am hoping to get it legal this month.

    Not sure if I need to rework the exhuast to pass or nopt. I only have about 200 miles on the new exhaust system. The guy that did the work said I didnt need cats. Now I am wishing I went 3" single with a cat.
    PLEASE HELP.........

    I thought if they were over 30 years old that they didn't have to have emissions. May be just in COLORADO.

    I thought I was going to be in the clear when I purchased it - didnt realize it was a fixed year instead of a floating point.
