Because right now I'm debating whether I should get the Gintani Race or Sport rear section. I want to be able to hear it in the cabin, so that's why I'm leaning over towards the race side
Yea, you won't pass smog, but you have 6 years from buying the car to worrying about that . And cops aren't going to check for cats on a high end luxury car. Also, there is hardly any smell with just test pipes.
