I'm curious to know if the JDM K20A would pass emissions out here in California. I am not quite sure how well JDM motors do on emission tests. So if anyone can leave me a post or maybe even a website to clarify this for me. And if the K20A can't pass smog does anyone know where to get a hold of a K20A2?

-TIA-

Well there seems to be a conflict then when it comes to being smog legal. Because you need the US Spec ECU to be able to get reff'd and pass smog (in cali). But by pulling a check engine light you automatically fail smog. But by having the J Spec ECU you can not get a reff sticker and you'd be lucky to pass smog. So pretty much if you are doing this swap there is no way to do it on legal guidelines.
