    LTs are gonna give you more of a gain in HP. A lot of people will recommend pacesetters. I have JBA also great headers but they are short tube. It depends on what you are looking for as far as clearance, HP gain and and emissions (I've heard emissions laws in cali are pretty strict)

    I don't know what the emissions laws are out in cali. but here you pass as long as the engine light isn't on. I think you aren't supposed to move the cats from their original location. So long as you have cats you shouldn't get caught unless they have someone looking underneath the car with a mirror. Your best bet is to find out what the emissions laws are over there. Sorry I couldn't be much help.

    I just got pacesetter l/t and I love them. My ground clearance is just as good as stock and sound is amaing with my hooker cat-back. If you need to pass just get a catted y pipe and you should be good
