I'm in the final stages of an engine conversion in my '85 CJ7. It has a 4.3L Vortec from a 1997 S-10. I live in CA and am ready to take it to the smog referee but thought maybe I should take it to a gross polluter shop first to have them check it out and even run it through to see if it will pass. Any experience in dealing with the refs would be helpful as well as any hints.

I wouldn't bother having it tested first - unless there's something seriously wrong with the new engine, it should have a lot less emissions than your original engine. Here's a pretty good description for the referee process. Wink
