High flow cats. Will they work?

I Live in NY and I'm redoing my exhaust I was originally going to go catless but I decided I'd order high flow cats since NO ONE around me would install a catless system for some reason... Anyway I ordered the high flow cats by slp from AM and I was wondering if anyone put them on Thier cars and how they sound/function as far as inspections?

New setup: high flow cats to bassanni x pipe to thrush glasspacks with 3 1/2 in tips? Anyone had a setup like this?

I read somewhere on here that hi flow cats are illegal. So I don't no how much truth is to that but worth checking into.

The reason why no one would do a catless exhaust system is because it is illegal. you might have issues with some one wanting to install the high flow cats. Lots of states have adopted CA emission laws. Removing and replacing cats is one of those things.

I ran an X-pipe with glass packs before. I didn't like my self. I like the sound of flowmaster better but that is just me. good luck on your car

Re: High flow cats. Will they work?

Do a little research, I seem to recall reading that Magna Flow high flow cats have a CARB number. If they pass emissions in California they should be fine for New York.

Some Magnaflow Cats have the CARB Number. However those cats are designed as OE replacement cost lots of money and are not high flow like the ones he is buying.

I would never run glasspacks. They sound horrible after a few months. Once they are blown, they sound worse than a honda. And you can install an O/R H-pipe or X-pipe yourself, but it won't pass inspection.
