H pipe

Okay do I have money to buy the off-road h pipe but I have emissions here in Utah and I would just switch to my factory pipe when I have emissions, but I am just afraid by switching back and forth I will screw things up and not be able to pass emissions what you guys think?

No you won't screw anything up unless you mess up one of you're o2, I switch back and forth all the time easy 10 min

I wouldn't be as worried about your o2 sensors but worry that you will strip a exhaust manifold stud. You should be fine doing what your saying but be careful.

Do I need to buy new 02 sensors or just extensions?

If you'r 02 year and up you need extensions and you will not need to buy new o2 sensors. O2 sensors are tuff to get out unless you have a o2 socket made for it and also spray a little pb blaster on it to knock off rust. I have the MAC h-pipe on mine and YES very noticeble difference. I like h over x pipes

Yes. Have you ever taken off a stock mid pipe? The passenger side is a b!$& to get off. The top bolt is the hardest and it can easily be rounded off. I used extensions that wobble and it worked like a charm. Pb blaster is your best friend during this job.

The gauge ring bezels and mgw ebrake handle and redoing my interior in carbonfiber. But I am now thinking wheel spacers sense I have the stock 17x8 bullits still to give me a wider stance since I'm lowered it will look good?

Make sure you don't break a manifold bolt! Heat them up until cherry red then the nuts will come right off, I had to do this because my h pipe was never taken off since factory
