Dallas County is very strict on emission testing. I would recommend a Bassani X-Pipe w/High Flow Cats. I would stay away from the off road H-pipes if you want your vehicle to pass. If you can get another county to check your emission, like Collin County then you could get away with the Off road H-pipes. Bassani X-Pipes will give you about 15 extra horsepower
The only extra thing you might want to do it change the headers. But that is very expensive and the horsepower gain is not enought for me to change them out, usually about 6 extra horsepower. With labor and the headers is could run as much as $800 or so ( not possitive ). But your exhaust job is pretty much done.
What you are planning on doing is very sweet. I have been thinking about changing my gears and chip out this year. Or I might get the X-Pipe put on. I have not made up my mind yet on which to do first.
I wouldn't count on anyone outside your county doing the inspection. If you know someone in another county who will do it, that's one thing, but most of them stay legal and check your address and insurance before doing the inspection.
The mandatory emissions testing follows strict guidleines regarding where the car is registered. If your car is registered in a county where testing is required, you'll have to have it tested. If you're registered in a county where testing isn't required, you can get your standard vehicle inspection anywhere.
There are some variances allowed, but don't count on getting one.
