Catalytic converter question?

I have a bassani x pipe with No cats and borla cat backs. I need to get my car inspected and i was wandering what my options were to clear the check engine light. I need to know what are some quick solutions.
thanks

Quickest solution is to use a programmer to turn the rear 02's off. Do you still have the factory manifolds on the car? If so you could also put your factory mid pipe/cats back in. The latter will assure you pass the inspection.

have you ever seen those things that you can buy to prevent spark plugs from fouling? i used a pair of those on my car that i drilled out so the O2 sensors would screw in, then i installed them in the pipe. i ran for about 70,000 miles without a CEL. my total investment was about $6

Turning off the rear O2s will guarantee an OBDII test failure.
