I'm originally from Connecticut and from what I remember those things you listed shouldn't cause you any issues. As long as you have a catalytic converter and no holes in your exhaust or body panels (wheel wheels, underbody, etc) you should be fine. It's mostly saftey equipement they'll check, like your lights turn on, signal lights work, you have a rear view mirror and side mirrors, etc. That's inspection-wise, but you should probably be fine with emissions too since all you have is an exhaust and intake.

You should have no problem, the inspection goes by polution level. If you have your cats you should be fine. I live in florida too, but I remember when we had inspection too.

In VA/MD they don't even sniff the tailpipe anymore, they just hook up to the ODBii port and check for monitor status and CEL.

In MA as long as your not throwing a CEL you should be fine. They are not super tough up here like some states.
