You will either have to get some cats on there or find a friendly inspection shop to help you out with it. I don't know how strict the emission laws in Maryland but most highflow cats will pass emissions in most states, minus California.

Sorry, I have no clue what our emissions standards are here. I live in Kent county, and we don't have emissions laws

It will not pass what type of emissions? OBD scan test? Sniffer test? And/or visual test?

We will need the answer to that to be able to help.

give the owner of the shop a nice joy ride in your car and he might pass you LOL!!! Maybe let him drive it with you in it.

rpm hit the nail on the head. We need to know exactly what it won't pass before we can help you.
