Maybe the under-side is out of whack. Bent frame? Rust on the underside. Cant pass emissions.

Cant be emisions. If it was emisions, why would he be moving the motor into another car? I have no clue, we dont have emisions here, so maybe there is a loophole I dont know about...

agreed.... Fix the SVT don't attempt a swap.

Only thing I can think of is cheaper insurance because of the zx3 VIN.
