    California I understand is really strict - catback shouldn't hurt emissions, some are pretty loud though, so check on noise regs too.

    In Cali you'd want to keep the stock exhaust manifolds and cats unless you feel like swapping headers in/out every emissions check. Looks like you just want a catback like ^^ said. I'd go with the Loudmouth myself.

    Pacesetter shorties are 50 state legal, the random-tech Y-pipe and high flow cats are built good and the fit is very good. Any CB besides flowmaster is good, magnaflow and hoker are the best bang for the buck IMO. Borla, GMMG sound awesome but costs your left nut....

    I suggest going with a true dual exhaust system using the stock manifolds and the stock catalytic converts with both pipes going down the passangers side, on over the axle and through straight through noise cancelling mufflers (one located on each side of the rear tub) then out from beneath the bumper in the stock location. I believe that this setup will be street legal there in Califorina. I and a muffler shop friend designed and built the dual exhaust system a few years ago with the idea of marketing it, which we never did. (I guess that we still could). I have this dual system on my car and it performs well and sounds good (not too loud, just a sweet deep tone).
