How are you almost positive it won't pass?

Have you gone and failed yet? If you do you will get a waiver, which will give you a bit more time.

Does the car smoke?

My advice, go and try the sniffer and see how bad it is, if you fail, you fail, no biggie. You could always lean it out @ idle, up to 2500 rpm's because they do an idle test then rev the motor.

i havent tried it yet but ive gotten one waiver already. it does have a little smoke come out when i gun it i just think that the 880cc injectors, turbo, and straight pipe exhaust will make it fail. im probably just gonna go try and see what happens. If you fail dont you have to spend like up to 400 bucks and then you can pass?

Eh, they won't gun it so you MAY be ok. They sniff it @ idle and around 2500 rpm's. Do you have something that looks like a cat? If not just get 2 heat shields and clamp them around your exhaust, looks like a cat!

Just got an fail, you can get waiver if someone signs off on $400 worth of work for you but they apparently "visually" check. Although if it's rings or something don't know how they will "visually" check that.
