Default Massachusetts inspection question

2007 WRX Cobb Stage 2, with turbo back Cobb exhaust with cat.

Will that exhaust pass Massachusetts inspection? No check engine lights.

Shouldn't have an issue. I'm stage 2 catless and only have had issues with my tint which I finally ended up removing. If you need the name of a place to go PM me.

You passed inspection in Mass without a cat?

Yes for a long time, but now I have a big fat "R" sticker on my car due to rear fender rust

FWIW, just tried to get my '20 STi w/ Invidia R400 done. Inspection station didn't give me a rejection, but also told me he wouldn't give me a sticker because it was 'too loud'.

Just depends on the station. I pass catless. They don't do a sniff test here and there's no odb2 test after 15 year old so you are almost at that point. It's just up to their discretion if they think your car is too loud

Oh def...it's just crazy to me, especially hearing some of the bikes out on the road now that the weather is getting warmer, that they wouldn't pass an STi with a catback. Just gonna try again tomorrow lol.
