Default CA Emissions...

Will a B20 pass the reff? Is there a reason I shouldn't look at that swap? Otherwise, I'll just LS, but I'm looking for streetable power that is BAR legal.

I suggest you do some reading on what engines your legally able to swap in and still meet CARB/BAR/WTFEVER silly emissions laws CA has.

Not trying to be rude, but did you try Google yet?

I did this search phrase "smog emission laws for california", and found this:

https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/dmv/detail/vr/smog


Another option would be to call or drive to the local emissions station and ask the tech some very specific questions. You're less prone to potentially flawed internet opinions taking this route.

And considering how often the laws change...call the ref. Aside from that, this thread is quite literally an opinion poll. Use the FAQ sticky, and be glad that RonJ didn't lock your thread.

^^^^^^^^^^
As an example
This, last I knew the B20 was classified as a 'light truck motor' and thus wouldn't pass anything.

The engine must be the same year or newer than the vehicle.

The engine must be from the same type of vehicle (passenger car, light-duty truck, heavy-duty truck, etc.) based on gross vehicle weight.

If the vehicle is a California certified vehicle then the engine must also be a California certified engine.

All emissions control equipment must remain on the installed engine.

After an engine change, vehicles must first be inspected by a state referee station. The vehicle will be inspected to ensure that all the equipment required is in place, and vehicle will be emissions tested subject to the specifications of the installed engine.
If a B20 is from a SUV it is probably considered a 'truck' and is not allowed into a car.
