    Mine has no cats. Granted, Colorado law enforcement isn't nearly as picky.

    I think QTP changed over the last couple years....

    But the main difference was in the collectors.

    There is no difference. Kooks used to make QTP headers.

    Yeah -- I went a bit on the high side with that one.....I wanted to use very conservative numbers just to prove the point that you could easily get to 420 rwhp for less than $9,500. I ended up at $7,400 -- if you're patient on finding deals for the parts and don't mind getting your hands dirty for the installation, you could still cut that down by a few grand.

    Its been awhile since I moved out of CA, but if you live in the actual city limits of those forementioned PD's you shoulnt worry about them. and my time there I've rarely seen CHP's pull people over in the city, they roam the highways.

    CHP is pretty frequent because I live of Artesia & Vermont, which is an entrance for 3 major freeways (105, 110, 91). And the connecting cities are that close togather....it really sucks

    the key to passing smog is the tune. if u out higher better heads on the car its going to make the fule brun better . the only thing that realy can mess up with u passing smog is the headers if u do a cold start u will fail 9 times outta 10 thats why the ls1 comes with so bad of exhuast manifolds is so it can pass with a cold start

    point to the story is 9k is way to much. i would get the parts u want and then have some one put it all on

    I've contacted Superior Automotive. I've heard they do "okay" work, but they are way on the $$$ side. Same with West Coast Corvette. If you're looking for a good shop give Danny @ OC GM performance 714-828-OCGM. He did an awesome job tuning my car. Planning doing cam and heads soon. He does great work and is very fair on pricing.
