Mass inspections exhaust question

If I have a catted downpipe and an awe track exhaust with no mufflers would I fail mass inspections? (my CEL is not on and my dp has the O2 spacer so my dp won't be the issue). It's. More a question about the catback exhaust. Will they fail me for not having a muffler?

When I had my POS Toyota in the early 2000s, there was no issue with the aftermarket exhaust. The state's looking for the downstream/post-cat O2 sensor to be "Ready," which is the only exhaust thing I can think of MA looking at.

This is very good news. I have a 42dd spacer around somewhere that I never used. I've seen differing opinions on how to orient the spacer's dogleg (pointed up or down). Any sense if this actually makes a difference?

from cranston which station did you go to for your inspection? i am stage 2 inspection due next month
Are you needing ri or mass inspections? I know your in cranston rn but yeah. As long as you're not throwing codes you should be fine tbh. If you have a cat and have the readiness monitors are all set you should be fine
