The last time I had mine inspected, the guy pointed at the front hood and said to open it.
I did, he looked very surprised, then very puzzled. He looked around to see it anyone else was looking at him, then asked me to close the hood.
He didn't look at anything else! Just stuck the little sticker on the window and said it passed.
He never found the engine.
