    yeah the jonnies will get you quick, a friend of mine runs a 00' mustang just that setup and got a ticket for a grand for the 'smog pollution and the noise pollution'.

    yeah well there isn't really any smog issues because I still got cats....right?? I dunno I guess I'll just take my chances, as long as I'm not hurting anything. I'm going with Lt's and TD's here pretty soon. haha I cant wait.

    Other than a nominal difference in lower end torque, it shouldn't hurt anything at all.

    While this has been debated for the ages, however most dyno results seem to indicate a slight reduction in low end torque and a slight increase in HP higher up in the band. All-in-all, not enough of a difference to be worried about.

    I bet it sounds great and you won't ever want to put it back together. but no, it won't hurt anything, it might throw a SES light but that is all.

    The hot exhaust being dumped right there might turn shit black after a while. I wouldnt recommend it. The only thing that California cops can get for for is a loud exhaust.

    Rear 02s have no bearing on engine control, they are just there to monitor the cats

    Exactly.
    So what you are saying in your previous post is mostly wrong.
    Those are the rear O2 sensors you see in the photos.
