Exhaust question...?

Might sound silly but I have borla ATAK axlebacks and look into some pipes for it. Would BBK off-road X-pipe go well with it and is that something you can do?

"Off road" X pipe is catless. I'd think twice in running this on the streets, as it is a federal law that requires catalitic converters on cars. No matter what the local state laws are, or if there are no inspections in your area, federal law supersedes any local laws.

Difficult (illegal) to sell or trade a car in without its federally required smog equipment. Even with "as is" statements in a bill of sale, a new owner can come after you.

Keep your stock exhaust if you go ahead with this, as you'll need to re-install the cats prior to selling or trading in the vehicle.

Install requires enough space underneath to get under the car to remove the stock pipes and install these. A lift makes it a piece of cake, but with jack stands and a hydralic jack, it could be done in a home garage.

Thanks for all the info that helps a lot. So would catted x-pipes be a good route to go?

I just finished doing this this weekend. It is possible with jacks, but it is a pain. I bought cat deletes and high flow pipes from JEGS which replaces the whole stock exhaust. But yes, keep your cats just in case, you will need a tune as well if you go catless.

Yes as long as you have some form of cats in your exhaust system you will be able to pass emissions testing. Just know that combined with your Borlas your exhaust is gonna get raspy.
