    you change yours back to the stock system every time you gotta get a smog check?
    Once every two years.
    First time I have to do it with this set-up...before the end of the month otherwise I can't renew my tags.
    Won't be going back to stock. Just need to get a small cam in it and put some cats up.

    What kind of exhaust set up do you have for the duels. I notice you have a muffler on each side.

    Magnaflow mufflers.
    The duals are custom. Took some work to fit them over the Moser 9" and inbetween the tunnel braced torque arm. Non-mandrel...which is the reason for the cutouts.
    Has a 4" x-pipe in there as well.

    The y-pipe ends under the passenger seat basicly.
    That is the proper place to put one on a mostly stock car.

    did you have headers?

    I dont have any pics but i put mine in the I pipe about a foot befor the bend over the axle, its almost like our cars were built for it there. No clearence issues and noticed a bid difference. Both in Power and ofcourse sound. I wont ever close it and for 30 bucks and an hour of work i love it. I got dyno time that says it helps out in the mid to top end range. You only need one cutout.
