Denver is as strict as California. No, it will not pass.
If you are moving there and aren't dead set on living in Denver proper, you can move to the outskirts where there is no testing. Places like Evergreen, Conifer, Idaho Springs.
They are 30 minutes outside of Denver. (Those are foothills areas)
Just make sure you are in Clear Creek County, Parts of Weld County ect.
I prefer the more rural areas anyway.
Only other thing you can do is fuel injection.
Ban computer updates, auto-play video and music without real instruments.
