Question and Options

So i want to get into autox and a few things came to mind...

If i have an exhaust on my car do i have to run in non-stock autox? I would think so but thats just one performance mod and it doesnt do a whole lot.

I have a big subwoofer in my trunk that isnt bolted down. However, i do plan on bolting it down. Is it required that there be no subwoofer in the trunk when competing? If so, what are some options i could do to make it easily removed without rewining the enclosure by removing the screws before each event?

you can stay in stock (if i'm not mistaken) with an aftermarket cat back.

as for the speaker, if it's bolted down, and bolted down GOOD, it can stay in. otherwise it has to come out.

but if it's your first time out, or even your rookie season, you won't be competitive, so they won't really hassle you on what class you're in.

A cat-back is legal in stock. If the speaker is secured, it falls under C&C and is therefore also legal--however, it would be benificial to engineer a system to make it removable--the extra weight in not your friend. I'm sure there are those in the know that have had the same dilema and have solved it--look around the forums.
