been searching all over the internet for this info. i have found info on some websites, but im looking for something more OFFICIAL. i checked the DMV site but couldn't find it. can someone point me in the right direction.

ALSO: ive been seeing alot of this from what i've been reading...

"as long as the engine is the same year (or newer) as the vehicle."

"Motor, ecu and emissions equipment must be the same year or newer as the car it is being installed into"

what exactly does it mean by "newer as the vehicle/car"
please give me SUPRA related examples. thanks.

It's very simple. The engine must be of the same year or NEWER than the vehicle it's going in. The engine must also have all the emissions equipment on it, that it's supposed to have.

California DMV is very anal about that.

For instance, if you're going to put a 7MGTE in a Mk2 Supra, of course the engine will be newer than the Mk2 it's going into.'ll need to make sure you have all the emissions stuff installed that the 7MGTE is supposed to have on it.

The smog referree will have no issues with your car as long as you do it right.
