Subaru Stars WRX stock TBE

Ok. So, I bought my car 2 summers ago and, as it turned out, had already been modified with 3" TBE. Not thinking about this on Friday, I brought the car in for an IM. As you might imagine, there was not a prayer in the world it was going to pass! Any chance someone here, if Fairbanks would have their stock TBE, uppipe and downpipe I could borrow, LOL! I know it's a lot to ask for, but I thought I'd at least ask!

@greenspeed: Tags are good for 2 years.
Plate and registration are already Alaskan, my IM is just due. I wish I would have noticed this, sooner!

3", from the downpipe to the back axles. Cat-back looks like it's possibly STI. Not sure of the branding, it was bought off of the lot that way. Does the uppipe have to be reverted to stock, as well?

Exactly why won't it pass. If its an actual emmision problem this can be tuned out. If you simply swap intakes out you may hose the tune and possibly damage the motor.

Yeah, I know. Billboard2001 has his stock STI exhaust that he has so graciously offered for me to borrow, as well as unmarrying my AP, just for the I/M. I didn't even think about the Stage 2 flash until it was already brought down to the I/M place and was turned away. Not having stock exhaust and an O2 sensor were also mentioned, oops! I didn't even think twice when I had it picked up for I/M, LOL!!!

it could if the closed loop tune is spot on and if the inpsection place doesn't notice.

I may need to find someone else, in the Fairbanks area, that would be willing to let me use their takeoff WRX exhaust. Anyone? If all else fails, I'll just have to find a way to get the car down to Anchorage, if anyone is willing to help out down there...I really need to get the car I/m'd, I'm tired of driving my sweet work van, lol!!!
