Default STi smog check

I have an 07 STi and its been 6 years so now I have to get a smog check done... only thing is im running into a couple issues.

Currently I have a Invidia Subaru WRX/STI Divorced Catless Downpipe 02-07 and a Subaru WRX / STI SS COBB 3" Cat-Back Exhaust and a protune from GST Motorsports using the AccessPort

obviously with these 3 parts I will NOT pass smog. I dont have the stock downpipe or the stock exhaust. If I were able to get my hands on the stock parts and install them would that fix everything?

or another option i was thinking of was buying a 3in catted downpipe and replacing the catless one but still use the cobb exhaust. will that work?

Any suggestions would be helpful! thank you!

Depends on where you live. Might be able to get more information if you post in whichever regional forum you belong to.

In CA I dont think their is an aftermarket exhaust that will pass smog. Last year when I had to get a smog check I had to put the stock tbe back on and reflash to stg1, their was still a lot of things unplugged and ghetto rigged. It passed fine, the improtant things are no CELs and ca legat cat (if you are in ca).
