restore CIS + suspension input

Would it be difficult to restore a 930 engine back to CA smog spec. I am looking at what appears to be a really really nice car within my budget but I am almost positive it doesn't have the smog equipment still intact.
From any experience, is this risky? If I can get the equipment, I can put it on, however, I will likely not have the vacuum retard (maybe i can glue a line on )

Does anybody have old smog equipment they would be willing to sell.

Also, is anyone running the following suspension set-up. I expect the ride to be pretty firm. My only experience is with a stock 930 though. How much firmness/harshness should I expect.
front torsion bars - 23mm
rear torsion bars - 31mm (i think these are effective rates as they are hollow)
18" wheels
monoball front strut bushing
lowered w/ bump steer kit
rear sway bar kit (forgot make)

I promise this to be my last CIS post (unless I get the car)

Thanks

There are many threads on the subject, you should do a search. From what I have read it seems that many folks are passing CA smog without much if any smog equipment on their cars.

You can put all the 930/68 CA smog engine stuff back on your engine if you wish. The dizzy should not be difficult to source as it is undesirable. I gave mine away years ago.

Thanks RarlyL8,
I think I have search every combination of CIS, smog, CA, etc...
I know many pass the smog test without the equipment, just want to make sure it is not too difficult to put this stuff back together. I don't see why it would be. Just need to source everything.

bump on the suspension....
