Default Swapping motors with a federal emissions motor

Hey guys so my question is.
I'm looking to get a new motor for my car it's a california emission car can I buy a federal emissions motor and swap it in without any issues? It will be same exact ej25d motor just the emission difference obviously.. If this is a stupid question I'm sorry I'm just trying to buy another motor for my daily and the company I'm contacting was asking what emmision my car was..
Thanks Eddie!

you can always swap the intake manifold and keep your computer, as long as you do that i believe everything should be ok for you, i don't think there's anything mechanically different in the fedeal engines.

Just make sure it has EGR also and you will be fine. Retain your original intake manifold.
