do you actually have to have the stickers or just need to know where to put the hoses ?

In the past in so cal my 79 camaro failed visual because of no sticker. (thanks to a nice chromed rad bracket with no stickers) I went home put the old bracket back on no more problems.

that sucks. more than half the older cars i see have missing stickers. although, i bet the state inspectors like that. we have a guy that failed his state inspection test so many times i have lost count. they are required to locate and identify the emission components WITHOUT any stickers.

Okay I gave a little mis info it seems cal no longer requires the emission stickers for a smog. sorry guys Embarassed The stock 87 tpi camaro passed okay Smile . The co was below average 0.0 at idle & 0.1 at 2500. the hydo carbons have a max of 125 & where at 86 idle , 60 at 2500. Does this mean it's a little rich? I know it passed. but should I change the O2 sencer, cat? I'm not a green freak but if it's rich or lean i'd like to see it closer to the average. the thing should last longer, In better tune. I think, or am I off on this. it's getting about 22 - 23 mpg. But smells rich. It's has new cap rotor plugs & wires. air & fuel filters have also been changed in the last month.

HC is slightly high and could certainly mean a slightly rich condition. however, it could also mean that the cat is not as efficient as it should be. i would really like to know what CO2 was. thats your engine "efficiency" indicator. a properly tuned EFI engine should be somewhere near 15%. if its down near 13% then you most likely do have a slightly rich condition. check the basics and dont forget to check for vacuum leaks. i dont remember if those use a MAP or MAF. if it has a MAP, vacuum leaks can and will cause a high MAP voltage and cause the PCM to add fuel.

Thanks 10 sec I don't know the age of the cat, so I'll be putting a high flow on soon. The 87 is a MAF system.
The C02 was 10.2 @ idle & 9.6 @ 2500,O2 was 6.3 @ idle & 7.2 @ 2500. I'll get a vacuum & fuel pressure readings tomarrow. I have to get new gauges. I don't think it would be a vac leak. the engine idles smooth @ 500 RPM in gear, & still smooth @ 750-800 RPM out of gear .

im thinking CO2 should be higher. however, if memory serves, that car has an air pump which will make the numbers weird. could still be a cat on the ragged edge also. i wish i could get it on our 5-gas and do some testing Confused .

I just found the fuel pressure is at 35 psig with engine off & 39 psig at idle. I have an adjustable reg I'll be putting on this weekend. The plem will get some porting done to get rid of those weird walls while it's off.
