Yes, still has the original D15Z1. There may be alternative approaches to getting the car smogged in CA, such as engine swap, head swap, etc but I do not have time for those. When I asked at the smog shop, they said something along the lines of "if it has all the emissions equipment of a comparable (or newer) model, then it should pass" (assuming the state-appointed smog referee has already signed off on it).
