calif smog legal engine swap upgrade

k1500 with, concidering its going to have to pass the origanal smog test .
thank you - todd stewart
As far as I know in California any deviation from stock is a violation in the emission standards, so I think you stuck with stock equipment.
You could install a newer engine if you made the emissions system fully functional for the year engine. After a swap you would have to go to a smog referee to have your truck certified. I would do a lot of research before doing the swap.
