There is a point where the law is just stupid. If I have a car that runs cleaner and passes emisions but fails visual, why is it illegal? That is the question everyone is asking over here. If a car is a gross polluter then fail it but if it farts out clean air then what is the problem.
I lived in California in the 70s and 80s. I remember sitting in my brother's convertible in traffic with my eyes stinging from the smog.
Look at Cali now
. Point taken on the visual and the absurdity of the implementation of law but if you have ever been inside a bureaucracy you will understand that this is the best you can hope for.
By the way for the spoolup noise fan, with my catted downpipe and JIC titanium catback, I can clearly hear my VF-39 spoolup, just revving it in neutral.
