Default Washington Emissions Testing- Questions

Can someone local help me out with understanding current emissions laws? Specifically to be emissions-compliant. I currently have a CBE on my sti, but I'm in the market for an aftermarket DP. I have Cobb Accessport and am running a stage 1 tune. The last time I got an emissions test (less than a year ago), they hooked up my car with their system through the OBD-II connection. Now...I kind-of want to get a catless dp but am afraid that without AP plugged in running stage 2 during the emissions test, my car will run rich and throw a CEL, thus failing the test.

My real question is...is there any way around them plugging into my car through the OBD-II (alternate way of testing?), or any way of avoiding an emissions test all together? (like paying around it?) I know there are people out there that have full catless exhaust and are still driving around, so they must have passed emissions some way or another. If someone could give me some info, I'd greatly appreciate that. Also, mods please don't move this thread to exhaust...it is specific to Washington State for a reason.
