Just another liberal state exerting control.

Down here in Florida, deletes are commonplace. I did deletes on both of mine.

Problem when you try to sell it & advertise as deleted, kinda put up the red flag.
Supposedly the EPA monitors diesel forums pretty close, guess they don't have any other concerns.

This could get out of hand. If a vehicle has an engine change it "could" violate emission requirements, this includes many classic cars.

Most state laws, if there are any at all, require that the swapped engine be from the same or newer model, and have all applicable emission equipment.

I think technically, if you LS a 67 it is supposed to have the same smog equipment on it as the new engine was required to have.

So in a smog check state, if the DMV knew of the swap you'd have to make it legal?

Had the same issue in CT when I did an upgrade and it wouldn't pass emissions until a close friend told me if the benefits of 1 quart of denatured alcohol in the gas tank.... Passed emissions test with flying colors after that.

Yes, in most cases the newer engine is required to have all the emissions gear that was on it at time of manufacture. We briefly had the IM 240 emissions standards in Texas about 25 years ago, and that info was in the book that we had. They built multiple huge testing stations, and then abandoned them. We now have a simple OBD port test.

No smog checks in my County, yet. All of my vehicles are stock, all emission equipment is on them, yes, even the diesel.

I've always read the best thing you can get rid of on a diesel is EGR. Just adds more soot to the oil.
