The BAR and smog check referee will require you install the emissions components which the engine you are using was equipped with. In this case the GM Vortec emission parts.
Once the engine change is complete and the vehicle operational, your Jeep will have to be inspected by a California State Referee's Office. The Referee will ensure that the job was done properly and that the new engine does not pollute. If all is well they will issue you a BAR label which will be placed somewhere on your vehicles chassis which will be an indication that the vehicle is California legal.
We always recommend speaking directly with a Referee before beginning any work. You can contact the referee by calling (800)622-7733.
