Default Passing Washington emissions

Hey nasioc community,

I have a couple of questions.

I'm currently running some crappy ebay headers and an exhaust shop cat back. I'm not going to be able to pass emissions in December when I have to go in. My plan is to get this header/ mid pipe combo, and I would like to get the N1 catback exhaust from Invidia

Header/mid pipe combo: http://www.semotors.com/tsudo-1997-0...ytic-downpipe/

My question is do you think with this set up I'll be able to pass emissions? Or is there anything I can do to my current set up too pass Washington state emissions? I feel like there's no way I will with the set up I have now because I've had 2/3 cats removed, a bad exhaust leak from the cheap headers, and I've got a CEL on because of the O2 sensor. Any feed back much appreciated.

Oh, the car is a 2007 subaru 2.5i

Thank you,

Note: This downpipe included with this Headers removes the OEM catalytic converter, which will trigger a CEL (check engine light) because of increased emissions. In this case, CEL fix is included to avoid 98% check engine light to turn, but the light does not affect performance. (some vehicle might need oil relocation kit)
Honestly, find a an oem part on ebay/cl/junkyard. Any other aftermarket part will prob still fail you.

Do they do a visual/tailpipe test or just the OBDII?
