Exhaust emissions testing?

So.. currently i just have the borla S-type axle-backs. I've been wanting to order the H-pipe from LMR. I just don't know if you guys have "ways" of getting through emissions with the off road h pipes lol. Currently my option i can think of is... if before every emissions test i change out the H-pipe and change it back once it passes...

Also second question, will the off road h-pipe still make a sound difference if CATS are welded on?

From my understanding, people keep all of their stock parts when making modifications so once they have to (smog) they can put stock parts back on.

People either know someone to overlook the visual inspection or put the car back to stock. Even with knowing someone if the car has a CEL on it cannot pass because you have to hook the cars OBD2 system to the emissions machine.

The best option IMO is going high flow cats although the only real disadvantage of that is the cost. As generally a good set of high flow cats will flow just as well as a off road pipe.

Nope. High flow cats ain't legal. You gotta get special ones.
