The carb sound pass I believe, dunno that the shop would seriously notice the difference, only that it looks new. I know nuttering probably won't pass emissions, thats why I never did it. I think to get antiques in PA it has to be 25 years but only 15 for classic. Thing is I think they have driving regulations on them, and this is my DD
should that say, the carb should pass?
You won't pass emissions either way, this is something you should have researched before changing the carb. The carter would have passed emissions, but once you went to the mc, you put a carb in there that has no idea about the computer and the computer still thinks the carter is in there. So it will still control everything, this is why you do the nutter.
In md, they have driving regs too, but they are not checked at all. Best bet is to get the classic....in md, this allows you to modify anything, not sure on PA, but it has to be better than the regular.
I think you need to see just what your state inspects, sounds like you aren't very sure. If they inspect emissions, they don't just take a look at your carb, they actually test the output of your exhaust, what you are putting into the atmosphere.
