If they don't require emissions where you're going to take the Bronco, as long as your lights, horn, signals, etc all the required things are working, you shouldn't have a problem with it. The fact that the muffler was bad when you went to emissions, this is the reason why it failed there.

My muffler system there is 2 or 3 emission part in the pipes from the exhaust to the muffler. can a straight pipe rplact those 3 piecies?

The only component that must stay in place to pass federal emissions is the catalytic convertor. If you are not concerned with emissions then a straight pipe will be fine. There will not be any adverse performance problems with a straight pipe. Please rate my help this helps me out , Thankyou RJ

87 bronco wont pass emmisions

CRC makes the 'guaranteed to pass emissions' which you must follow directions-add to full gas tank, run for certain amount of time, etc.before testing. If you were close to passing emissions, it could help, I used it and my test #;s were close, and I passed, HOWEVER, since you are missing one cat, I don't think the guarantee is valid, nor do I think it would work. In my state they visually check for cats, and if you don't have one, FAIL. You can find generic cats on the internet for a good price, of course then you have the job of installing it. As far as the gas for free, water to gas, stay away, save your money, that scam has been around for a long time. Good luck!

High emissions

Emission standards are so low these days that its almost impossible depending which state you are in to get this vehicle to pass. For this vehicle to pass the engine itself have to be in tip top shape and the computer must function properly. I've had a problem like this with a 85 Toyota land cruiser and I have change all those things you change except the timing chain, IAC and MAP and the problem was the computer got a manufactured one and BINGO it passed emission test here in NY. Two choices try the computer or let it sit for a few more years then it becomes a classic after 25 yrs and it doesn't need emissions NO more just safety, like brake lights seat belts etc. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Lol my problem

Leave the cat there. Just add a length of pipe and add a muffler (just get a cheap turbo for $20 bucks at a parts store). Clamp it all together and go. Should be fine.

No wait

If the muffler is literally falling apart, I would replace it before you take it to get it safety inspected. If it just has a small hole in it and has no chance of it literally coming apart, then I wouldn't worry about it. So technically, it's not necessary to replace the muffler for a safety inspection but it'll be up to who is inspecting the car if he decides to have you replace it or not. So if the muffler is "rough" , I would replace it. If it's still in good shape, then I wouldn't bother replacing it.

Muffler problems

The muffler issue is all about the decible levels for the area that you're in. They just want to make sure that it's not considered to be too loud.
