CARB Forcing me to pollute

I have a 1991 Corvette ZR-1 with integrated exhaust manifold and catalytic converter. One (perhaps both) are getting weak and eventually (maybe next week) will fail the smog check for NOx. No replacement converters or exhaust systems certified in CA will fit (although many converters are miss-listed as fitting, as only 5000 cars were made with this system). So if it fails, and if I can prove to them there is no replacement part available, they will just exempt the emission test, but the car will still pollute. The rules prevent me from adapting a 49 state unit, adding extra cats, using used units (which I would not do anyhow), etc. Wonder if anyone has suggestions? Also, how hard would it be to sue them?
