getting the JDM swaps to pass CA visual and tailpipe emissions require:hioctane said:I plan on doing an N/A to Turbo Swap probably from chicoracing. I was wondering how would I pass smog or what is the correct process of getting a swap done. I am totally clueless and I want BOOST!
well -- the smog techs usually smog it as a NA still -- reason is -- they are too lazy to actually input the data into the computer for the correct engine -- they scan your registration and go from there -- the registration automatically has the vehicle specs inputted into the computer (engine size, transmission, smog equiptment, etc) and the tech just scrolls through it all as fast as possible to get your $$ and get you out of there.hioctane said:also once the engine is swapped in, would the smog people smog my car as turbo or NA? One final question how much for engine + installation and how do does your engine clips include transmission? thankssssssss
