MD Emissions test coming up

So, I got this upcoming Maryland state emissions test for my Evo 8.
She has hi flow cat to a Buschur full back.
Should I worry?

You can set it to force pass in your rom, if you think you'll have an issue.

After modding the car for the first time I took it to the regular emissions site. I was worried since my car was the loudest in the line. The guy checking my car visually actually wants an Evo so he might have been distracted/bias but he nonetheless passed me.

Then I switched to SD and got the EGR removed. I was again worried that maybe this time I won't pass the test but reading the paper they send to you, I saw that our cars are allowed to use those self service sites. So I used it recently and passed in seconds. I think as long as you don't have any CEL lights on, then you're golden. The best thing is there's no one actually doing visual inspection.

Funny story, I got pulled over by a cop because "of possible exhaust and emissions infractions" and asked for my latest emissions test. He thought he was going to get me easily, I just smiled, gave him my copy, he looked puzzled then said he's going to check their systems. Took 30 mins and he came back saying everything looks good. He then says my exhaust shouldn't have pass the test and I'm like, do you want to come with me to take the test again? Lol.
