Desmog 280ge?

Is anyone familiar with desmogging a 280GE? Steps involved?
I'm new to the W460 having just crossed over from TLCs. I've designed both my 60'S great results
Wondering if it's worth it on 280GE?

Re: Desmog 280ge?

My 280GE was built "Gulf spec" with no cat. It is rated at 156 HP instead of the standard 150HP 280GE. Seems like minimal benefit unless you need to rebuild your exhaust anyways.

RE: Desmog 280ge?

thanks you the reply. Mine came in through CA so I figured if there were any smog components on it they were done to an extreme in california. I do have a hole in my EGR valve - maybe some JB Weld until I can figure out an appropriate plug.
