MA State and Header options

Alright MA members. I have been saving some coin, and getting ready for a purchase. I am wanting the gains of Long tube headers, but in doing so, eliminate cats. My other option is Mid-length with HF Cats, which are more inspection friendly.

With these two options, who in MA has done long tube, and how do you get around yearly inspection? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Do they do a visual inspection in your state? Down here in CT they do sniffer and visual, my longtubes passed just fine.

I don't have a G8, but I have catless headers in MA. You need to tune out the code from the rear O2 sensors and you are good to go!! Been running this way for years!
