I dont think any JDM motor would pass smog as they are not as tough regulated in japan as they are here. Plus i think it would be illegal to have a Japaneese motor in your car(based on the DMV) as they also know they dont pass smog. A Type S swap possibley.

You will be able to ref a USDM type s motor but not a JDM motor in cali. Give MIDNITE PERFORMANCE a call. They will help you get your motor reffed.

I was talking to Warren from Midnight yesterday and he said its possible to get it ref but it was going to cost G's. But since your getting a C5 it doesnt really matter anymore. Good luck.
