    just swap in a GSR motor, pass the ref. inspection. Then after you get the sticker that state you swapped your motor out and that you are legit, then go and do what ever internals you want, just make sure you keep it mild enough to pass the visual inspection, and do not go higher than ITR internals.
    read the FAQ on this site there are some good articles on the subject.

    go talk to your local CHP officer and he can tell you everything you need to know.

    first of all your engine has to be same as or a newer year then your car. if it is not you can not do it no matter what. second you need to have all your smog shit on. not only must it have all that stuff it must look clean too. your harness must not have any exposed wires. the ECU must be for that engine and you need to get it varified somewhere like a dealership or something. after that you just need to pass smog and then i think thats it.

    you have to go to a CHP inspection station. they check the motor, vins, ecu, OBD, and all that. It has to be from the same year or newer. Then if its all good, they put a lil sticker thing in yur engine bay, usually on your radiator support, that says its a legal swap so if you ever get pulled over and they make you pop your hood, they can't say shit. But yeah after for smog, it won't pass with higher compression pistons in there. Cams will be fine though
