exact issue a month ago...4.2 weber carb...wouldnt idle, loaded up at half throttle. Failed emmisions horribly. Bit the bullet, dropped $1350 on the Howell TBI. Passed with flying colors with the California Kit (after the right people would look at the documentation). Oh, and the performance is just an added surprise!

Well I could of afforded a Howell if I didn't spend 3000 trying to get it to pass tomorrow I meet with a guy from the state to see if I could get a waiver to get my plates he has to verify all the work that has been done and that it doesn't smoke fingers crossed I get it

Okay so didn't get the waiver because all my emission system isn't there my mechanic said it was there he didn't know about the two tubes that go to the pulse air system so I have only one hooked up the one that's there's goes into my exhaust the one that goes into the cat is missing what made me mad I told them that one was supposed to be there and they said they would check well maybe because I'm a woman they think I dont know anything so they choose not to listen I also have the wrong cat which I asked about also since it was not oem I was assured it was better maybe so but you have to have the pulse air hooked up or you fail emissions

Ask the state inspector for the name of a shop that is competent in emission work on tht model vehicle. You aren't trying to get away with anything, you are trying to work within the system. If he can't help, contact his boss and the governor's office on consumer affairs.

edit to add: your shop doesn't know what they are doing

If you can, post pics of the parts you need. Some of us may can help a Ca Jeeper trapped behind enemy lines.

first attempt went the same way...failed on mixture too rich...no mention of the pulse air tubes missing. Tried the first "recommended" shop...complete joke. They just soak your wallet dry. C'Mon CO...
