    I've followed many of your posts on the various Toyota boards over the years, very very useful for my 1MZ stock rebuild Anyhow you seem to be the most knowledgeable guy anywhere on 1MZ California engine swap rules which is what I am trying to figure out.

    Basically, I have a 1998 FED (F VIN) original 1MZFE car, If I do an engine swap do I have to convert it over to California Emissions, or can I swap in a 2000 1MZ FED setup. I need to referee the car as I want it to smog as a 2000 due to the easier OBD based test, but Fed due to the lack of the expensive WU-TWCs and complicated evap system. For this model, the 1998 and 2000 Federal emissions setups are actually identical. I would be incredibly grateful for your thoughts on this issue.Tim

    Im getting interested in doing a v6 swap in a MR2 and am wondering how you got the 1MZ pass inspection for CA smog? Also, any thoughts on smogging a 2GR?
