I've noticed companies like Steeda have great products but aren't CA legal. What about Magnaflow, Borla, FlowMaster, etc? What do some of you run?

What can you do? Can you install a flex back system? If so get a fwerks stealth system.

To be honest, I'm not as familiar with CA law. I know there are some emissions restrictions here. I'm from NC and anything goes there. I'll check into fswerks and see what they offer. Thanks for the reply!

Thank you for suggesting FSWerks. I just noticed they're local in Anaheim. That will help with buying products and having them installed. Anyone have experience with FSWerks?

I have the FSWerks stealth system. It is not CA legal if installed as designed. It removes the second catalytic converter (PZEV models). If you want to remain CA legal you can get the Magnaflow system which installs after the cat or have an exhaust shop fab a system for you.
Also, if you want to remain legal but want a better tone, look into the FRRP axle back system. It will save you $$$, stay legal and sound good.

That is why I love hearing from others. Thank you for options I've never considered like the FRRP axle back system. You all are awesome!!!

If you are considering axle back or full cat backs I'd look into what Rebel devil customs is offering. Mike just did my exhaust and I couldn't be happier! Plus he can work with what you want to guarantee it meets all the specifications you need.
