Ender92 well where i live you only get one inspection when u first buy it then never again so i wasnt thinking bout smog.But if u hav spi just be warned that wit strait pipe they are LOUD so if u travel any it gets seriously annoying an will give passengers headaches :)

Pclay Yeah I was looking into a straight pipe 2" no muffler or resonator and then swap my old exhaust on in like December when I need it inspected again cause I feel like it wouldn't pass without the muffler cause of smog bullshit

Ender92 i think i ended up spending around 300$ I got the resonator put on later because it was so loud.I think i would also go with smaller pipe too.2.5 is overkill with so litle horsepower.It def sounds better an seemed to gain little power but then its an spi so.....

Pclay Yeah I was thinking about having a custom one build but does it cost more? Sound better? Perform better?
