Not sure where my mechanic got them last summer for my 82 Pace Arrow with the 454 but if you can't find them I can try calling them and see where they got them from. I'm in Minnesota.

What state reqires you to smog check a 25 year old RV? Can't you just install plugs? Can't you say you have a heavy duty chassis which didn't come with A.I.R.? How could they even verify that?

I remember that back when we had to have this done in Minn. they used mirrors to look under the car for a converter...
Who's to say they won't look at engine Comp.?

Converter is more or less external. To look at the engine they would have to come inside and remove the engine cover. Not an easy or quick thing to do on some vehicles. And what happens if the required parts are no longer made? Are you supposed to scrap it?

That's what headers are for! Just be sure to wrap them or you'll have hot toes XD

Or you can weld plugs in the holes, that's what the previous owner on my rig did.

Plug the holes, remove the air pump and hoses and don't degrease the engine. The dirtier the better come inspection time.
