Yeah 04 civic is right, as long as the engine can pass smog u'll be straight. I know in Cali. if a pig pulls u over and has u pop the hood, (and actually knows what he is lookin at) If u have a swap he'll right a fix it ticket, and u have to go to a ref. and prove to him that everything complies with state regulations. For regulations check ur local DMV. Late
