On a LBZ what is the difference in Cal. emission and the standard Federal emission requirements and does it effect mileage?

Can I title a new body 2007 from TX in CA?

I'm new to this forum so I hope I'm posting in the right area. I'm thinking of buying a new body style 2007 Duramax from Texas, but I read that you now have to smog these in CA. Are all these truck 50 state emission compliant or do we get special ones in CA? Can I buy this truck in TX and then register it in CA or am I asking for trouble with the CA DMV?
The DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) and the programming makes it 50 state emission compliant for the 07.5+ models.
Thanks for the reply!
