I'm lucky found a used one for $150 awhile back and cut that one up while keeping the one that came on the car.

Thanks Dave. I'm hoping the smog guys will overlook a clamp as long as it's still the OEM X-pipe as long as it passes the sniffer or OBD inspection in a few years. For the people who don't know, we have to also pass a visual inspection in addition to the sniffer. Later on, Cali should only have an OBD port inspection and visual inspection.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
