i want to get a set of pacesetter headers mids probably, but can i use an off road y pipe and still pass inspection? i figure its called an off road y for a reason and new york does have fairly tough inspection standards. i know i cant use the stock y cause i called the place that was what i was told. so can i modify the off road y to pass inspection or will it pass the emissions test the way it comes?
my car is a 93 z28 a4 hooker catback, qtp cutout, k&n cai, vortec elbow, high flow cat, tb bypass, tb airfoil, rk sport ss hood

Gotta have a catalytic converter to pass inspection. Once you pass, pull the cat off and run off-road.

No cat = no pass

the off road y eliminates the cat?

can you incorporate the two by cutting the y enough to fit the cat or is there not enough pipe for that to work? theres got to be some way to make it work. or maybe i should go with shorties like bbk or edlebrock

I have the pacesetter LT's and ORY, but I had my exhaust shop put the cat back on the ORY so I can pass visual inspection. And I know its no longer considered an ORY.
