    header question

    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.

    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

    Whatever you do don't go with either BBK's or Edelbrocks. You won't notice a difference in performance - that statement coming from experience. Shorties suck. Go with a set Mid-length headers like Pacesetters, which flow better than the above mentioned and still allow the cat to retain the factory position, hence allowing you to pass smog.

    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.
