I've heard about some law that says you can't put an engine in a vehicle that has a bigger displacement than the one it already has. Has anyone else hear about this, I know people swap engines all the time.

I've heard the same, but I believe it only applies to Northern VA, where they have emissions checks. Outside of there, I believe the only law is that the engine has to be the same year or newer than the vehicle it's going into.

I might be wrong though...so it's worth checking into...
