Is there anyway you can contact the previous owner to find out where he went to get his inspection?

300 is not bad to pass honestly

Just make sure they are not slapping on a random sticker from another car

Some places will just give you a sticker, and that will work until you need to re-register your car. Then the DMV will say you need to get it inspected...
So with that said there is a way to trick the system so it takes your VIN and you pass, even if you are catless. There was a big crackdown in 2017 so its hard to find shops that do this now. Even before the crackdown most places were charging $100 for doing that trick.. I would imagine they'd ask for more now.

Easiest is put the stock downpipes on then get inspection then switch back.

IIRC after 1 years without a sticker the computer knows you dont have a valid sticker the car will be flagged and every time you pass a cop with those scanners you will be pulled over. Most cops take this type of crime serious I believe it is a felony forgery and people think its no big deal but it actually will cause a big headache to you and your future.

These cops are everywhere now with those scanners on every bridge and highway even local town and small town cops got them now.

I would buy stock downpipes pay the labor and return to catless over paying someone and rolling the dice. Your quality of life is worth way more than that and the cops/judges do not care.

Either way u will end up paying $$$$ doing this the right way or you take a shortcut and when you get caught you will pay $$$ for a lawyer and then $$$ to make the car legal.

Dont do it

Well, i don't know where do you live, but here in NY for no inspection $65 ticket and they wont pull you over for it, you may get it if you park in public places where regulated by traffic enforcement.

Not sure what part of ny you are but ive gotten it in suffolk, nassau, westchester each time it was around 200 plus a surcharge. Maybe its 65 in nyc if u get a ticket by a meter maid. I think if you get one by nypd its more than 65.

If the shop just puts a fake sticker or a sticker from another car on then its a felony.

Also they do pull you over for not having valid inspection the new cop scanners specifically get alerts when u pass by and it scans your plate comes up as not having valid inspection. I seen it happen and DMV even has sent me letters for my c63 which hasnt been inspected that it was overdue, and now its expired this info is also in the cops database that use that scanner so when I drive by they will get alert and pull me over. If i have a inspection sticker on the car yet the dmv says no inspection on file they will know right away whats up. Maybe u can play dumb but I rather not risk that too much time to lose if it goes the other way.

When you fail inspection, it gets reported to DMV AND Then usually they will give you time
To get the problem fixed and pass the inspection. I live in NYC.

Why are you unable to pass inspection? I always pass with a defouler or a tune. Grab a Jb4 or a no foul o2 adapter dor the down sensor. I'm confused.

Ok on the defouler. Using a tune to simulate proper o2 readings wouldn't pass? All of my cars are/were decatted and never failed NY inspection. My X5M just passed with no problem. Velos tune, catless d pipes.

You have no CEL but your failing inspection? Can you post the results sheet?
