I live in a county with emissions testing, pretty close to what California requires if I understand correctly. I've only been in an area with emissions about eight months so I had a few questions.

I'm running the factory carb on my 1990 2.3L and passed emissions pretty easily. If I understand correctly, swapping to a Weber involves removing a lot of emissions control equipment.

I haven't found much information on this searching the forums, but how much would a Weber swap affect the emissions from my truck? Will I still be able to pass when I'm due for another test in two years?

I was planning to go with the 32/36.

It deletes the EGR at least, right? What about all the computer controlled stuff?

It does away with all that. There are some webers / kits which claim (no first hand knowledge) to be emissions compliant for select year models of toyota. Don't know about isuzu. They (weber) pretty much state they're not emissions compliant. Minimally, you'll probably need the fuel shut off solenoid. If they don't lift your hood and only test "emissions", there's ways to legally past the tests. The ecm in your 90 model is very primitive therefore it doesn't take much to meet or exceed its emissions control/output. Do a little searching and you'll find what you need to do fuel wise, engine temperature, etc. One other thing to take note of is the weber is intentionally jetted rich. This alone will impact the emissions. About the only difference in your california emissions / federal emissions control is the california emissions vehicle has an exhaust temperature sensor feeding data to the ecm whereas the federal versions do not. There might also be a small difference in operating temperature idle speed (rpm).
