I don't think any down pipe is legal. They are designed to eliminate the cat. You can pick one up at myfordperfomace.com . I put one on my spi With the shorty header and I noticed a nice increase through the power band. You will need a O2 cheater harness which u could pickup at newedgeperformance.com to take care of the check engine light.

Eliminating the catalytic converter on ANY 4 cylinder motor is gonna make it painfully obvious that your car is not legal. Its gonna make your car LOUD AS HELL!!

At WOT you can expect a nice high pitched and ground shaking event. lol

After installing my exhaust kit I added a silencer for off the track use and the car is not loud at all. But with the silencer off it is really loud.

If you want to be safe, just get a high performance cat. If you just want to be crazy mofo, get the straight pipe!
