1986 chev p/u emisions eqipment. keep or scrap???

i just picked up a 1986 chev 1/2 ton, runs really great, has all of the original emission equipmnt ( charcoal canister, etc ), it seems all to be there and work just fine, i live in canada where it is not required by law so i am wondering if i would be better of to yard all of it out or keep it in there

If it aint broke dont fix it....u would see very little of anything. Unless you start to mod it for perfromance gains...then you would prob look at getting rid of some of it.

Emissions equipment reply

My 2 cents are also for keeping the OEM emissions equipment. You won't really notice much of a difference if you remove the emissions equipment, however, it may affect the driveability of the truck, in regards to regulating the HC (Hydrocarbons), NOX (Nitrades of Oxygen), etc. The equipment is there purely to regulate the engine and make sure it does not pollute in excess. If you are building a trail rig which will only be used for serious off roading or where weight is a concern, then yes, remove the equipment; otherwise just leave it alone. But ultimately, the end decision is up to you.
