will JDM motor pass emission test?

I am possibly thinking about doing a swap in the near future, and was just wondering if a JDM would pass a California emissions test?

emissions, yes. visual, maybe.

all honda motors are gonna run very clean unless heavily modded or if there is something wrong w/ some of the emissions equiptment…so don’t worry about emissions.

visual however is not so friendly. for any smog shop to legally smog your motor if it is not the original motor then you must have a BAR sticker. no bar sticker and they won’t smog it… however if they don’t notice that its a swapped engine then it won’t matter. it really depends on the shop you go to and how picky they are and how much they know about hondas.
