I don't know about inspection in n.y., but if it's like pa, I don't
think people will care. You should be more concerned about
emissions. If something is supposed to be there like a cat
converter, it needs to be there. Your best bet is to call nydmv
and start asking questions. If you find out anything, let me
know. You may need to get a new vin in order to pass
emissions/inspection.

My dodge dakota 3.9L is a 1993. Would it be the same as the
newer ones for this swap. Also the dealership can put your
vin in the new PCM and then all numbers will be good for
state inspections.

Pcm issue solved. I found this out by accident. If all I can get
your hands on is a pcm from a Durango or Ram take the pig
tails with it. On your harness your using cut the pig tails off that
and start matching up wires when done you just created a
wiring harness that will run off your Durango/ Ram computer.
