Default Question about a 2000 Honda Civic SI (EM1)?

So I was about to trade my '05 Civic Hybrid for an EM1 SI. What has me thinking is that there's a swap in the SI. The guy tells me the original engine is a b16a2 and what's in it now is a b16a. Two things have me thinking whether I should do the trade or not. 1. He lost the receipt for the swap so I'll never know exactly how many miles it has, just that its between 75 - 100k right now. 2. The check engine light is on because of the distributor. The guy tells me the distributor is from the b16a2 which is causing the check engine light to be on. He says if I buy the b16a distributor it'll go away. Anyways, what do you guys think. Should I do it? Will it pass smog?

Negotiate the price down since the MIL is on (don't trust him that a simple distributor swap will fix the light), and since the engine is not original. Also understand that you may have problems with it since you don't know who did the swap and have no warranty for it.
