Oh it is getting ridiculous with smog here. I remember "Hot Rod" did an article a few months back back about the California Air Regulatory Board (C.A.R.B.). The writers held a meeting with them about smogging their Crusher Camaro with a newer engine back in the 90's. Long story short, although the Camaro put out excellent emissions results with the newer motor (comparable to the modern cars of the time), the boys at CARB said that the smog shops would lose money if the visual inspection portion was eliminated.

As for me, the biggest concern is not having an EGR and, as cobalt327 pointed out, I need to look up whether it came with one or not.
