Some people prefer carb still, but most everything is moving to fuel injection. Fuel injection is more complex but allows much more control/logging/etc of the engines functions, which is a huge benefit to extreme conditions and longevity.

If you're trying to keep it street legal, any engine swaps need to be the same year or newer than the vehicle. And if the vehicle has EFI, to be ref'ed,  the engine must have EFI and any smog emissions systems for that motor's application and year.

Won't smog. You have to have all the smog equipment for the engine, plus be the same year or newer than the chassis.

Or, you'd have to know someone with a smog hookup.
