You're right, there must be a reason. On my old escort, i had to take out 
the cat, and replaced it with a straight pipe, wouldnt pass.  Put in the 
new cat, passed easily.

However, my '69 Mustang  (302) passes real easily, and has better result 
numbers than my old 4000q.  ANd the mustang doesnt have smog pumps, 
charcoal, cats etc!!
