|nicholaspatchen||Not true there is a guy here in Cali named Todd Custer, he does V8 swaps all the time, featured in JP magazine. Said hed do mine, I was trying to get an idea of more shops in the area that do it. Btw, Cali only requires that the engine has to be from the same year or newer, and they usually want the same transmission from the engine in order to pass smog... but thanks for the advice|

Not only that, from my research when I in Cali, they won't let you do an engine swap to an engine with a different number of cylinders that was offered from stock. Aka jeep never had a v8 in the wrangler for your years so no v8 is allowed from what I understand.
Do the research first, I saw one guy in Cali posted he found out AFTER he did the swap. Good luck.

The swap will be the easy part. Getting a Ca. Smog Referee to approve it may be the hang up.
