"Actually, 87 was the last year of the 22r (carb), and it was only offered in the truck, and only in non-California equipped models.
My 87 was a bare bones truck with a carb, and it always passed the test well, but failed a "visual" inspection once because the testing station insisted that it was not properly equipped. I just about went ballistic on them. I took it to another station, and the really nice elderly guy spent about 30 minutes reading through documents to find the right into for the truck.
All that said, you need to make sure your 87 was not solid in California and that it is truly a 1987. It if is a 1988 or later you will be out of luck. They did have cat converters, but no O2 sensors, no check engine light, etc. There was no OBD setup on the carb'd 22r engines."
Is there any sort of ECU or any other fancy electrickery on such a model? I've about had my fill of electronics in cars that I didn't design and build myself...
