    You could always get high-flow cats or gut your stock/current ones. That could save you trouble down the road.

    One guy in my club had a 99 anniv. edition ta with a full cage, HUGE cam, long tubes, no cats, slicks & skinnies, full race car, and he brought it to the testing station on a trailor and unloaded it right out front. All the employees kinda gathered around. They still passed him.
