Here's what I was told not too long ago. I can do a V8 swap but I have to use the same year engine and ECU as my truck, and I can only go as high as 347 C.I.D on the engine. You guys may not have a limit on the size of the displacement like I do. They put a cap on the size in my state for some stupid reason other than emissions. They're worried about structural integrity or some other B.S. Yes Big D. is right. alot of states have adapted this law, CA being the first (I think). Knowing the inspector doesn't help you in the long run either. It might at first, but if you get pulled over and they break out the portable emmissions checking machine and it fails, that inspector could lose his permits for doing inspections and his shop could be fined. I got that info from a federal D.O.T officer not long ago. He also said that it really depends on what state you live in cause some are just now getting started doing inspections and some don't have any inspections.
