aren't NAs motors 5SFEs??.....this swap has been done by many....u should be able to pass smog sniffer tests....its the visual u may fail....as long as ur swapping in a genII motor with all EGRs components still intact and a stock motor......
Unless you have like a 98+ I believe it is... you do not have a 3sge. You have a 5sfe. The swap is a direct bolt up, but you will need a COMPLETE clip. Make sure you have axles, downpipes, exhaust system, air flow meter, intercooler, wiring harness etc. etc.... missing parts are a bitch to find... i got pretty lucky.
As for living in California... you ARE screwed for smog if you get a JDM engine. You will either have to pay the guy to pass you... or get all the missing emissions equipment such as EGR, Cat, factory intake... etc. I just plan on paying
make sure you get a USDM version of the 3SGTE because the JDm motors doesn't have the EGR hole on the head if you're worried about emission. If not, check out www.ctjengines.com just east of you in Ontario, California. I carry everything JDM.
