Smog Check with Muffler Delete

I'm sure this has been covered somewhere, but couldn't find it in my search. I guess I have to get a smog check since my car is 6 model years old. Problem is I have a muffler delete. Nothing else deleted, just muffler delete. Do I need to put the muffler back on or is this not really an issue and I should be ok?

As long as the cats and all other smog is still there, you should not have an issue.
They don't care about mufflers.

That's what I'm thinking/hoping. All cats are there and resonator.

Any idea where to find the best place to take it to get smogged?

Mufflers don't do anything to the emissions so you're fine. You can go anywhere.

I have a similar question, do the resonator matter for smog check?

Resonators or Mufflers don't affect emmisions. Only Cats
