Wrenchtech, the question stated that both engine sizes were available for that year, make, and model. When I was performing smog tests, as long as the engine was available for that particular vehicle (year, make, and model), and was the same year or newer, the swap was legal.
Second, notice the particular model being asked about, the Terracan. This vehicle is not available in the U.S. This means our laws don't apply to it. Other than that, you are correct.
Elwalid, what country is the vehicle in? In order to perform this engine swap, you will either have to change the computer, or have it completely reprogrammed with the correct parameters for the "new" engine.
