I've definitely heard of it happening, but it's usually when it's associated with a group of guys street racing or doing something else equally stupid and the cops are just looking to pile-on to make life difficult for the offending parties. AFAIK, cops do have the right to inspect under the hood if they suspect possible illegal modifications or stolen parts.
