contact your local motor vehicle department and ask what makes a car illegal.

I looked up "Illinois emission laws" using google.com. I found this in the following link:

Contact the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at (217)785-7449 or the Illinois EPA Emission Hotline at (847)758-3400, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. for further information.

hope that helps. VicRattlehead (Keith the TCCoA guy, not the Megadeth Vic) is from Illinois. Get a hold of him if nothing else....

I believe you need to keep all the emmissions control components from the 89 to be legal. You can swap engines, but you'll have to worry about meeting all the 89 requirements and the other drawback...your car may be emissions tested with the 89 SC engine restrictions. Call your local AirTeam and ask where to get the "RIGHT" info.

In vermont you can put a newer engine in an older car, as long as you keep the smog equipment from the newer engine. putting an older engine in is another story...you have to PROVE that the older engine will be the same or less of a polluter.
