I'm in california and swapped a chevy L59 vortec and 4l-60e tranny. I had to go back to stock for my car to pass smog because the asswipe DMV referee wouldn't give me a carb sticker because the motor wasn't "an available option for the vehicle make." I'm moving to Nevada next december, and I'm going to see if their laws are written more intelligently. I mean with the L59, I was getting about 24mpg, and I know it was polluting less than my 4.2l(12mpg). The smog laws are there to protect our environment so they must know something I don't
