Need advice!

Looking to pickup Full Akrapovic system, I live in Cali.

How do people get around the smog issues that come with the x-pipe. Do you simply throw on your stock system when the time comes? I assume that'd be costly down the line. I don't have the proper tools and time to do it myself.

Just looking for some input, I might get the rear just to avoid the trouble for now, but I sure wouldn't mind having the full system.

Thanks in advance.

Depends on the SMOG place but typically you can find one that is aftermarket friendly, not that you heard it from here.
