You're in Kalifornia comrade?

See GT1GUY's thread and click on the links. You will find the ass pain that you will be put through and then just because you might get it approved the first time doesn't mean some ref/emissions guy fails you down the road just because.

Read and read some more. Check out Motech's posts in the links.

Good luck.

^ lmao....

....unfortunately it's true. Commiefornia has no problem letting go a 5x deported illegal immigrant that murders a 32 year old woman point-blank on a San Francisco pier in broad daylight but heaven forbid the marxists allow a V8 swap.

Classic one and done poster. Probably already traded it in. "Is thinking of a new engine" until he realized he needs 12-20k to do it. Hell I did the same thing the first few times I thought about it.

yep.
I even have the MoTech spreadsheet / price breakdowns which I open 2-3 X per year , feel a little sad and poverty stricken then close it until I think I can budget it again 3 or 4 months later, lol


Youíd think theyíd just want everybody to have a Gen4 or V LS motor & maybe suckup the biggest chunk of cost to we owners ; wheníd a customers smile stop being worth $20 grand, Robbie?


HaHa....
