Emissions testing help!

I recently did a cat delete exhaust on my 2008 m3. I didn't realize that my inspection sticker was about to expire. I plan on putting on high flow cats later in the year but in the mean time I need to get my car inspected. Does any one know of any places in Houston TX that are partial to performance cars and will overlook the emissions test. Send me a private message if you do, I'm getting desperate.

I'm hoping someone will help you, because I'll be in the same boat soon. Why are you going to high flow cats?

I don't wanna go to high flow cats but dealing with this every year is gonna suck. Unless I can find a shop to pass me.

Sorry I can't really help with a specific shop, but my understanding is that in Texas, they only plug into the ODBII port and if readiness passes, then you are good to go (so if you are tuned, you may be okay depending on the tune). I am concerned that if they do a visual inspection and see my test pipes though, I'd fail.

Not looking forward to spending another afternoon or two swapping x-pipes if it comes to that
