Previous owner was unsure of whether timing belt was done. Is there some way to tell if it were?

look at the belt and see if its cracked at all, check and see if the pulleys look new. If the belt breaks, the head is trashed.

I put in the CFM 49 state cat as I wanted a "little" more tone plus I have stringent emissions here in Arizona. I have stock exhaust except the CFM flex pipe and cat. I think it sounds perfect. Everything I've read is ORP is loud. Loud is a measure of your own taste of course.

Just got this done, I'll probably be posting this everywhere since I love how it sounds hah.

Borla Catback with Jay Racing High Flow Cat:


I like this setup because it's not obnoxiously loud and has great tone. I heard a friend's Borla/ORP setup and it was just a bit much for my tastes. Preserves the two O2 sensors, no codes thrown yet, but I do have Tom's Tune in case I need to update it.

Use non fouling spark plug tips! Screw them into your o2 bung then the o2 sensor. Brings them up enough not to throw a code. 2.99 for a two pack at autozone.
