I have a 99 LS integra doner car that i am swap the motor into my 93 cx hatch. What do i need to pull and swap to make it legal so i can pass at the smog ref?
Havent been able to find anyone who can help me and i am sure im not the only one who has attempted a legal obd2 swap into an obd1 car? Thanks for looking.

here is a basic outline of engine swap rules for california:

-donor engine has to be same year or newer as chassis it's going into
-donor engine must have ALL original smog equipment for that model year (exhaust manifold, cat, o2 sensors, EGR, vaccuum lines, etc)
-donor engine must use the engine computer from that model year
-donor engine must be a USDM engine. ie. legally you cannot swap a B18c2 into a civic.

you have to take the car to a dmv referee who will examine your car and verify if it's smog compliant, then issue you a DMV referee sticker that will all you to get your car smogged legally

Dude, have you noticed nobody even comes in here to post? Try honda-tech or something. The answer is you need everything, but HOW you do it is not going to be found here.

There used to be a guy that custom made harnesses on Honda tech..this was a long time ago as I don't visit there anymore but that's why I said look elsewhere. What you are trying to do has been done a thousand times and has been majorly simplified over the course of time so there really is no reason to just screw around with it and see what happens.

I'm only leaving this spam here because it's funny. We all should do brushless motor swaps in our cars
