    While taking out my old 305 to put in my new 350 in my '85 K5, I'm in a delima to either take out or leave in the smog pump? I live in Norteast Alabama but the truck will be getting inspected in Northeast Texas (where the work is being done).

    Should I just yank it out and forget about it or leave it in and connect it?

    Thanks in advance,
    Craig

    If you don't need it, take it out. If you do take it out, hang onto the parts!
    I ran into this problem with my wife's truck ( '88 K5 Blazer). Had no emissions... So... I pulled the cats and air pump, installed headers and dual exhaust. Pitched the stockair filter for a 14" K&N. Couple years later we have a visual emmissions check. Now I have to hunt down and replace all the goods I pitched.
