Looks solid, but I hear you cali peeps can land in a world of shit if found with a test pipe. I would just stick to a hfc. The power gains from a hfc to a test pipe aren't significant.
I'm a Pennsylvania native so I can't speak to the repercussions for tampering with emissions equipment in Cali, but yes, smell will be quite noticable without a cat.thanks bro! but, based on forums, if its not stock cat, its illegal? is there a difference when caught with straight pipe from hfc? or just less obvious due to smell? thanks again!!!
