Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make a 1980 MGB V8 conversion
pass EPA requirements?  I have someone in Charlotte interested in purchasing
my car but it must meet North Carolina pollution control regulations.  I
live in the north Georgia mountains where state pollution regulations don't
apply so it goes without saying that I will need to make some changes before
this sell can be completed.

My conversion was done using a Buick 215 engine and has the traditional
headers coupled to a single 2" exhaust, Edlebrock  4 barrel and stock
ignition.  This car has no catalytic converter, air pump or other emission
control equipment installed on it.

In Georgia any vehicle with an engine not standard to that model is
considered to be a modified car or Hot Rod and is exempt from the Clean Air

Am I doomed from making this sale or is there some loophole I can jump
through that will allow me to be grandfathered?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
