Is it bared? Because if not you won't be passing any smog.

If the engine is just a replacement engine for your car then yes it will pass. If the engine has a bigger displacement or is for a different car then it will need to go through a state ref to get legalized.

Seeing that you said its just a 1.6 sohc (non vtec i assume) ZC engine then you should have no problem passing emission.

I do not know where you are located but as an experienced person that has done this in CALIFORNIA, you shouldnt have any problems.

I think it has to pass the emissions for the year of the engine and all the emissions equipment for that engine has to be on there
