Actually, the CA law reads such that the level of emissions equipment goes
with whichever is newer, the chassis or the engine.  If you can equip that
hemi engine with APPROVED emissions control equipment that matches the year
of the chassis, and pass the tailpipe test, you're home free.  Of course, it
may prove an expensive task, but you COULD do it, providing the equipment
was available.  Might be somewhat difficult to fit an approved motronic type
system to that 426, but you're ceretainly not barred by law from doing so.
Just figuring out a camshaft grind that will be both approved and workable
might be the hardest part.  John
