    not sure it could be smogged in certain states (California) and I would think the computer would need a bit of reworking.

    would you be looking at a new crate motor or an old rebuilt motor. If it is a older motor I think you would have to change the tranny as well. a new carbed crate motor might still have transmission issues but I don't know. there are others on here that will have much better knowledge than me on the subject.
