I dont belive the engine will bolt to the 3.8 trans. As far as emissions anything can be fooled except a visual, but it's difficult.

The New York State inspection is not easily fooled. A computer is plugged into the OBD port and the registration is scanned. If anything is triggering a code, you don't pass.
