Default Tips to Pass CA Smog?

Time to get my stanger smogged for the first time next month :,( First of all, do you guys know any small tips/tricks/diy tweaks that might help me here? I'm sure lots of you have had smog issues before right?

Second, it has no cats right now thanks to the previous owner. Do you guys think it'll pass with a single high flow cat? Or suggest what kind of setup i should consider given the current mods on my car?

And third, could anyone suggest a place to go to that's a bit more lenient? Not a shop that works "under the table" (although that would save me soo much hassle ;D) but a place that's lenient on mods and stuff like that. I'm here right between Sac and SF in the bay area.

Most info and mods should be in my sig.
Any help's appreciated
