Default 1993 Firebird Formula

I'm looking at buying a 93 Firebird Formula. Car has around 100k miles. Car has SLP long tube headers, Y pipe with high flow cat, and a corsa exhaust. Question is will the car pass emissions in CT? I know for OBDI cars they run a sniffer, so I don't want to get this car and have to modify it just to pass emissions.

Also, should there be any specific things that I should look at when I go look at the car? I know firebirds have issues with door panels, headlights, and probably rear end whine, but let me know if you guys have any other suggestions.

Check with DMV it's 20 years old now, might be able to get an antique Plate on it, if you can I think the rmmissions get very laid back at that point

Pretty sure CT is 25 years for antique plates, but I'll take a second look. Thanks

If the car is stock should be fine. If the cats are gutted there is a good chance it wont. A clean running car is one thing but nothing to scrub the pollution out you may have to get another one just to get it through. Only once every two years emissions. No biggie.
