US California SMOG

Does anyone have any insight or experience with registering a 1992 or older D90 or D110 in CA?

I am on the hunt but want to know what engines are better to smog in CA or what the magic setup is so I dont buy one that is unable to be registered.

Any advice would be amazing.

Thank you

The safest bet with the path through least resistance is the North American Spec (NAS) 90's (1994, 1995, 1997) and 110's (1993).

good luck! your best bet is to register it out of state, first, for about two years and then it becomes a 49 state emission compliant car... then you register in california... good luck... dmv is a pain in the but!
