could someone clear this up for me. as i am confused, mainly about exhaust. i have a mbrp cat-back(no header). also i will be be adding stage 1 cams in a couple of months and a tune. i know that my intake has got to go and so does the tune, but will adding a second cat clear up the problem with the exhaust or does that have to come off too? i know there has to be someone out here in ca with cat back, lol.

Your catback is fine as long as it is behind your second cat, which is below you ebrake. You will just need to remove the CAI and put the tune back to stock and it should pass just fine. Even if you have the second cat removed and possibly kept your CIA on, you could pass too. Those two will depend on the smog shop.
