It's easier if you let the air out of the tires so you don't have to drag around that little step.
Also they have these little platforms that super handy to work off of.

So to smog that with a LS swap.
Check with BAR, there are steps you can take to certify it. Iirc it will either need to meet the donnor's standard, or 2021 standards.
Check with them so you know what you need to keep/add

Engine swaps in calif have to meet the donor vehicle smog requirements and have to go to a state referee to be inspected.

State Referee's are idiots. The only reason a smog inspection station becomes a referee, be cause they inept and can't get/keep customers. Every one I ever had to deal with fit this category. Or they were out right crooks.
