Nutter Bypass and Weber Carb

I replaced my stock carb on my 88 Wrangler with a Weber carb. That carb cuts the emission controls totally. Is the Nutter still needed?

On another note, any tips on passing a Cali smog test? I failed miserably last time I tried. Apparently I'm a "gross polluter" of California!

Yes. The computer still controls timing. I was having major issues with pinging. I Nuttered it and it's running muuuuuch better.

If you decide to Nutter it, here's a tip; make sure you definitely twist the two wires together just like the stock wires are. This is so that IF there is a lot of noise in the engine area due to bad wires, plugs, coil, etc the wires will be less likely to pick up on it. Basically it just helps with noise interference.

In my case I Nuttered first and then will be replacing the BBD carb with an MC2150 once it gets here and also doing the Team Rush mod at the same time.

I won't be able to help with the California emissions unfortunately. I just don't know how strict they are during their "visual" inspection if there is one at all.

Get ready to put that Carter back on. You'll never pass the visual in California. It's got to be everything intact, completely stock.

In california after your vehicle reaches a certain age isnt it considered a classic and the rules and regulations differ? I would still get rid of the carter is a pile. Best of luck.

Thankfully, I don't have to pass the full California smog test. I'm stationed in California but the jeep is registered in Florida. Thanks for the help.

smart..


FWIW and for those of you in positions to use this info. Vt state is VERY reasonable for registrations. i live in NY, and NY wouldn't work with me to get the title taken care of, so i went to VT, explained the situation and walked out 30 minutes later with new plates in hand.

i have to go back next thurs for the inspection, and must get VT insurance to go with it, but i'll let y'all know how that works out. this is legal, and if you can make it to VT for the yearly inspection, it is much easier than MANY more nanny states are...

all that said, i would have preferred to get it registered in NY, but those are the brakes,, NY likes to slit its own throat that way..

That's good news...I think you could probably stick a V-8 on a shopping cart register it here in Florida
