You should check with someone from your local DMV....here in Jersey they modeled the testing after Cali and are basically the 2nd strictest state with emissions and as long as you tell them your stock cats were damaged or you have over 70,000 miles they will let new cats slide. They don't give me any crap about my bassani catted X.97vertstang said:here in cali only the stock cats pass. the reason im contemplating taking off the last 2 cats is because most vehicles only have 4 cats.if the smog tech looks at it he will think thats the way it came out.at leats i hop so :dunno: .oh and o/r h sounds like ass with 1 chamber mufflers. they sound nice with 2 chambers etc.. i still wouldnt want to change the whole exhaust cause i dont want to install o/r h here , because of calis laws.so i was thinking of taking off the rear 2 cats and welding something like this..
so what do u guys think???
