    you need all the US smog equipment on there, if you don't know what you're looking for take it to a mechanic? and i think in california to sell a car the seller has to smog it before he sells it. make him get a smog cert. to give you with the car.

    JDM motors normally do not pass smog here in california. I have a USDM motor and it will pass smog but I got the usdm motor so it will. California is laying the smack down with smog laws! :whip:

    Oh yea, before anybody sells a car here in california, they HAVE to get it smogged. Unless it is changing hands within family, then you would not have to get it smogged to BUY it, but it will have to be smogged eventually.

    that is only speculation, i've seen JDM motors pass. like i stated before, if you have the US emission equipment, you are ok.
