New carb, will it pass emissions?

Hey all – I may have posted this a while back, I can’t remember, so my
apologies if I have. Car is a 1985 Corolla SR5, 221k miles. Runs well
but uses about a quart of oil every 3000 miles.

I want to put a Weber carb on it to increase the horsepower, right now
it’s making 70 hp (flywheel). What i’m worried about is the emission
controls – the current carb has lots of vacuum lines running to a
variety of sensors and whatever. Weber told me that "these will be
plugged off, cleaning up the underhood area".

Will this make me fail emissions? Or can I still hook up some of this
stuff somehow?

Thanks!

(The exact carb I want to install is a 32/36 Weber 2-barrel, replacing
an Aisin 2-barrel.)

    Some state do tailpipe testing may fail here, some states like NY do visual
    inspection for all emissions components in place.
