with some fabrication. big block and emissions should not be used in the same sentance

I had a big block put in a 85 Camaro V6. It can be done pretty easily! The whole emmision thing I see being a problem.

I'm curious why emissions would be a problem. Find a donor car or pickup to cannibalize for the necessary "required" equipment. Give it a de-tune once a year when it's time to get the pipe sniffed.

Most places I've gone for emissions wouldn't know hte difference between a BBC or SBC.
