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.
