New Legislation
Effective January 1, 2010, smog emission inspections are required for diesel-powered vehicles manufactured in or after 1998, and have a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 14,000 pounds or less for original registrations and transfers. Biennial smog inspection requirements will be phased-in beginning with a registration renewal date of April 30, 2010.
This is from our wonderful CARB. I still have not found anything regarding an engine swap but still looking.

Shame they had to go t those lengths. Wouldn't be an issue if we didn't have all those dum@sses in pickups dumping soot all over the road after they put in/flashed an aftermarket "chip" or whatever.

Anyway, here's the info from the BAR. If you have any questions you can call up the BAR and schedule a discussion w/ a state ref at a later date.
