Default Sub old non computer engine in place of computer engine

Got an old -don't know what year - olds engine and auto trans that ran good when pulled . My 2001 Ford crew cab PU w/200K miles on it needs some drive train help . Any one done this type swap out before ? I am sure we could get the Olds eng / trans in and hooked up , but could we get it thru inspection with out a computer for them to hook up too . I am gonna go to DMV insp lane next week and ask . Suggestions any one .

If you guys still have smog inspections, it would be very doubtful. Unless the 2001 vehicles are exempt now.

Way more trouble than it's worth IMO. You could buy another beater truck for less than what you would have in the swap.
I'm the dirty dozen for the price of one...
