The OP's car is a ZX5, the WW WRC kit includes fender flares for the front and rear to account for the wider bumpers. He will have trouble with the rears, since the flare will go right over his door.

Or even a catback sold/installed by the car dealer. They just give u a ticket no questions asked without measuring decibels. Then u have 5 days to go to a police station to have it checked measured

All my cars have been catless with modified exhausts... Ive been pulled over +20 times and been to court to argue tickets 19 times when i lived there. I only had to pay 1 because i actually did a burnout on a traffic light and a moto cop was 2 cars behind me

You could put a full simple steel pipe from front to back as long as you pass your emissions test when called upon which for older cars is every other year and I think every 5 years for newer ones.
I ran a straight pipe in my very modded Eclipse and when it came time for emissions I just bolted the stock cat back in and lowered the boost back to stock levels and ran the car hard right before the test and it passed everytime.

3" from the turbo back and ugly as hell but sounded nice and threatening especially when flames shot out the pipe and no tricks needed it just that rich.
