Default RI state inspection ?

Anyone here have any experience with getting your inspection sticker in RI? I want to start modding this summer, but our state regs are pretty strict (my Honda had some issues a few years ago with just basic bolt-ons). I'm new to the Subie and turbo scene, so anyone know offhand what'd cause an immediate failure or problems? I'm trying to avoid the drama and headaches ahead of time.

Once you pass the inspection, then you can do as you please.. Easiest way imo

Aftermarket exhaust, wtf? I can see issues if the mufflers are "deleted", but even with mufflers?

If you have like and spt one you would be fine, because you can show the inspector that it came from factory

OK. What about down pipes, intakes, and tuning with Cobb Accessport. Also problematic?

Usually when someone finds a station that works in their favor, they keep it for themselves.

The first time I took my build 06 wrx into a station, they failed me due to the loud catback. So, I swapped an sti one in went to a different station, and I passed. My point is dont make it so obvious or, they will start to check everything. Always keep your stock exhaust. It comes in handy.

I've never had any issues with both of my cars in Warwick. My Sti has everything on it and no cat either.
