    The only way you can make it pass is to pull your swap and drop the original engine back in. The new laws are super strict. You really can't swap much of anything any more...

    I'm pretty sure that you CAN do that, since those engines came stock in that chassis...

    I 'think' you can still put that motor in your car in CA if and only if its a USDM motor. JDM motors have different markings on the block (like a B16A is JDM where B16A2 is USDM)

    They just take your word for it? You don't have to show current registration? You might want to check your resources and find out for sure...

    I know when I went a month and a half ago, they wanted to see my current registration and the paperwork from the DMV--Both of which have the year of the car on there. Not to mention when they run the vin they are going to see all the information on the screen anyway...

    Says who? If you know somebody working at the ref station and they told you that they would pass you, then fine, but I wouldn't just count on it if you don't know for sure...

    Convert to OBD2....its possible. And I think the ref would know how to tell if your car is OBD2 or not.....so you should be careful or hope for a dough head ref

    You could end up with your car being red flagged (it would def happen in CA)
