And I think it might be illegal for any legimate shop to do because it deletes a catalylic converter. At least that's how it is back in CA and we have similar smog laws now.

Anyone experience problems with the state inspection with catless downpipe?
I don't want any headaches down the road.

Meld, do you have a rogue shop or something? =) Where are you located? I am near Riverside.

should pass catless if you have EM and no codes. if you don't pass, it's only a matter of an hour or so to swap your OEM DP/cats back on....

Meld will do a good job. It's super simple, so make him show you how to do it.

Nope, no rogue shop, just a garage with good tools and the willing to help out... I am in round rock, which is give or take about 25 minutes from you...

What would be a reasonable way for me to repay you, Meld?

I have over 100 million dollars in monopoly cash.

EDIT:
Which DP would you recommend? Helix seems to be popular and cheap.

if you put it all in a trash bag and water it down, you might be able to recycle it for good money
