    Did you have to take it to the state ref to get CARB approved on the swap? And was it easy since it's a motor from a newer model?

    The car would not pass the state referee. California is really strict with any type of modification, so it runs the risk of getting state reffed every time i drive it.

    Best bet is to wait until Dsms are smog exempt once they pass their 25 year mark.

    Oh believe me, I know all about that.

    BTW, there's no rolling 25 year mark exemption in CA. Only cars produced before 1976 are exempt:

    https://www.smogtips.com/need_inspection.cfm#:~:text=As of April 1, 2005,the 30-year rolling exemption.

    https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/vehicle-registration/smog-inspections/

    Unless the law changes, DSMs will never be exempt in CA (except for a few very rural counties).
