This is true. He just said the guy who inspected the vehicle. Does this mean he is only an inspector? or has a shop also?

Either way an inspector could be even worse. I had an inspection shop, only does inspect type of place, SMOG/inspect my focus. I have the SVT header and CAT. Well since the shop saw it was "aftermarket" (even with the Ford stamps?, think ther CAT was just not were he is use to see it) he went to make sure the # of CATS was held. Well he thought my Car was a Duratec which I guess had 2 CATS? So when he looked in his book and saw it should have two and mine only had one he failed it. Either way it was a huge work around because after he failed it (did not bother to ask me) it was permanently in the system so had to go to a state inspector...
