    Ok, if you replace your engine with a new model that's fuel injected and runs cleaner than a 15 yrold carbed one, will it pass inspection because it's not 'origional equipment'? And what is the definition of a 'crate engine'? Does it have all the accesory pumps, starter, alternator, etc? Or is it just a block and you add the extras?

    Usually a crate engine has the bottom end and the top end done. You have to supply the ingition, fuel system, cooling system, electrical system and the brackets.

    My limited understanding of the rules for most states is that swapping a newer motor into an older vehicle is legal, <font color=blue>AS LONG AS THE EMISSIONS EQUIPMENT REQUIRED FOR THE NEWER MOTOR IS USED.<font color=black> It's difficult for me or others to give a better answer since your profile is blank, but that's your choice. No one here will hold your desire for privacy against you. Your best bet would be to find a good inspection station and ask some discrete questions. If you're in CA, be prepared for a paperwork nightmare.
