912e 914 engine swap


Vehicle Information: Model: 914; Year: 1975; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 1.8L; Total Mileage: 79000;

I am interested in purchasing a 1976 912E. This particular car has had the 2.0 engine replaced with a single carb Type I VW engine. I have a 1975 914 1.8 with body rust issues. I know that being in California this 912 will not pass smog. So, is it at all possible to install the 1.8 from the 914 in the 912E? How complicated will this be and what smog issues do I need to consider? I would like the 912 to be a daily California smog-legal driver if possible with out crazy mods to either engine or car.
