any swap is "Legal"

if you mean emissions and junk but even so. the KA system has a AIV and EGR for emissions so anything you get can be clean.

If you wanna swap that bad SR is the most common, and probably the most cost effective. Ive seen 2jz's, 13B-rew, LSX motors, RB motors, a 4age motor, just depends on your bank. you probably dont have much so try to find a KA DE motor and work a turbo with it

Are you unaware that the VG30DE/DETT is a 6 cylinder?

With crap gas mileage.

Depending on where your located and how strict emission is, a modified SR with a cat can easily pass inspection.

You can't make it legal...no swap is legal if its not the same motor
This. Now if by "LEGAL" you mean pass emissions, that's different. Need to specify.

Im pretty sure he only said that it is illegal to do any swap becuase he lives in cali and they have strict laws about modifying cars.

Everyone has there own personal preference. I love rotarys. Please try not to post this flame bull shit in another members thread he asked a question and I gave him my opinion. Rotarys are small and when driven correctly get good gas mileage. They are also a rarer swap into the S-chassis than the standard sr or rb. They also can yield high numbers and they have a very appealing exhaust note. They also are fairly easy to pass emissions with which meets the prerequistes for the ops question.
