Won't SMOG without Intake Snorkel?

So years ago when I first got my 01 GT, I took off the rubber snorkel that goes from the fender to the intake air cleaner box. Been that way since what, 02-03?

Today my dad is helping me smog the car while I'm at work, and the retard at the shop says he can't smog it with that snorkel gone. WTF?

It's been smogged every time since I took it off just fine. Has anyone else had a tool stop them for something as stupid as this?

I say just take it somewhere else, but I am also guessing the toolbag probably put some red flag in the system about that part missing that will appear everywhere now?

Man I haven't got a clue if I still have that thing or where it is at.

No flag can be input into the system for that, as that capability does not exist. Take the car somewhere else. I have no EGR, no cats, my car is loud as hell and I am able to pass every time.

Only problem is I'm sure you've already paid that shop to do the test? Maybe go back when someone else is there that's not looking to pop you for the littlest thing.

Found and installed it. Knew not throwing it away would pay off.

Cleaned the Engine bay and K&N while were at it.

Been back to the inspection station yet? I'm curious as to what they're going to say.

Delayed update.
Installed Snorkel, went back, and passed no issues.
