Borla 2.5" Cat Back exhaust and RT Highflow Cat
Does anyone have both the RT Cat and Borla 2.5" Cat Back Exhaust for the SVTf?

Any install issues with these 2 together? I just bought the Borla and seriously considering buying the RT Highflow Cat as well

exhaust sound
WOW, that's just how my SVT sounds with just a magnaflow muffler. wish i could afford the RT cat. maybe soon

I read on Random Technology Website


Under Federal EPA regulation, replacement of original catalytic converters is allowed only if the original converter(s) is missing, or the vehicle has more than 50,000 miles or is at least five years old and the need for a replacement has been established and documented, or a local inspection program has determined the existing converter is in need of replacement.
So I guess if you remove your standard CAT your are essentially breaking the law. In texas inspections are done annually. Not sure if it is worth the risk. I guess I will stick with the Factory SVT Cat and Borla Cat Back Exhaust.
