The quick and simple answer is -- no. For better, or for worse, the computers and all related sensors and controlled components are an emissions control system -- even if they do (or don't) control other systems.
Figure the new vehicles these days though. A separate computer that controls your AC, suspension, brakes, engine, safety systems (air bags), headlight alignment, navigation, and on and on and on. And many are interlinked with another, or several others.
Yep --- I love my '75 truck.
Edit add on: You can always 'upgrade' the engine to a more fuel efficient one - but you cannot 'downgrade', and ripping out what ya got to likely change to a carb system is an obvious downgrade. I'm sure many have done it in a "non inspection" State, but it is ill-advised.
