Its been a decade since I lived in NJ, but if memory serves, they don’t crawl all over/under your car inspecting everything. They primarily stick a probe up the tail pipe and measure the emissions coming out of the pipe at a couple different RPM levels. So the cams & headers should be OK as long as they don’t make you run too rich and ultimately produce too much NOx gas. However, since you don’t have any cats or an EGR, you will almost certainly fail if you had it tested today.
