Help me pass inspection

I have an '85 F150 300/ NP435/ 3.08 2WD.
I've made up my mind, so don't go there, but I have scrounged up all the parts necessary to do the Autolite 2100/ Offy/ '93 EFI exhaust/ DSII improvement.
The question for all you guys that have done any modifications under the hood is, after reading the Wake County regulations for Emissions/ Safety inspection I'm wondering how the heck to pull this change off and still pass. Anyone in the Triangle area that I should go see to have it inspected after I make the switch?

Most places won't even pop the hood on something that old anymore, especially since it's now just a safety/visual inspection. They just check the lights, horn maybe and maybe look at the tires, then send you out the door until next year.

get a 4bbl air cleaner off a 5.o mustang, and put it on foe emissions, that's what I do here in md, works every time. he pulls open the hood, sees the stock air cleaner, and closes the hood. good to go
