well that makes sense, since no JDM will be completely legal in the US ever.
I'm sure there's ways you can get around smog in cali tho, there's TONS of 240 guys running SR/RB swaps.
or you can also do a KA24 swap, to keep the cost down and itll be easy to smog. Another option would be a VG30 swap from an SE S12. Of course these engines don't make nearly as much power as a stock redtop SR20 though.
