Weber Worries

I have an 88 YJ that had gone through 2 old Carters, so I upgraded to a Weber 32/36 last September. It's done well for me, but I recently found that the intake manifold is cracked, which isn't helping performance any. I'll be swapping in a new one in a week or so.

But I'm worried about passing emissions which is coming up in August. I've left the mangled mess of vaccuum lines in the event that I'm forced to put my Carter carb and monstrous air intake back on. I want to completely yank all the unnecessary vacuum lines out, especially when I'm swapping the intake manifold, but am worried that I'll never be able to get the confusing mess back together if necessary.

I guess I want to know how many of y'all out there have passed emissions with a Weber? I remember reading somewhere that people have done it and I want to know what I can do to improve my readings.

Here in Colorado, they don't pop the hood to check things out, so unless they are getting really odd readings at the Emissions Testing Center, they'd never know there was no stepper motor or anything. If I get good numbers, I'm golden, if not, I'm screwed. Swapping carbs every year for emissions would suck.

Any advice, past experience, or anything would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

I believe people have passes with this set-up, but I would not bet the farm on it. The vac system is not that complicated and if you have to install everything again it should not take that long to do it. This link should help.
