ALMOST legal high flow exhaust ideas?

Not sure if there is already a thread about this, but I couldn't find one. I currently have a turbo back straight pipe. I'm having difficulty finding a 'friendly' state inspection station and the requirements in VA are a CAT w/ O2 sensors (doubt they check for sensors) and some type of baffled exhaust behind it. So I think my options are to gut my old CAT, get a DPF delete pipe and, run a cheater type muffler (or gut my old one) along the rest of my current 5" pipes. I would spend the extra cash for a larger diameter CAT, but the biggest inlet/outlet I could find were 3".

I don't want to choke the SOB because I plan on getting more upgrades, but I don't want to deal with this BS every year. Any ideas???

I miss Tx...

Is it visual inspection only or do they hook something up to the OBDII port as well?

No, visual only. They use a mirror and walk it the length of the exhaust.

If you have the stock exhaust, why not just swap them out and get it checked then back off. I can have my stock exhaust back on in under 2 hours

I will most likely go that route, but was looking for a permanent solution.

Thanks

They make a really short diesel muffler on eBay. It would be a good solution, and would keep your sound. But honestly, the turbos are technically a muffler.
