Good to see these going back into production! I have no plans of ever letting mine go.

Did the spring 2014 production ever start? I'd like to get in if it's still possible.

If these are still going into production, I'll take a price quote as well...

No biggie. I drove behind a car the other day without cats. It stinks. If a cop ever pulled up behind me, I'd be screwed. I hear the fine for messing with catalysts in California is pretty big.

Judging by the commentary in this thread, I think there are quite a few people that feel exactly the opposite.

I have read a coouple stories of the gintani x-pipe developing cracks in teh welds which had me second guessing this route. Gintani was my second choice but this and the very long lead time have me not making a move on it. If a quality used one came up for sale that problem would probably be ironed out haha

I emailed Malek a few weeks ago regarding the x-pipe and this is the response I got from him copied and pasted from the email:


It is no longer manufactured because the state of California does not allow any exhaust manufacturer to build a product that tampers with Emissions. That includes MRF, Akrapovic and etc unfortunately.

I will stick up for Malek here and say he is correct.
The EPA dropped the hammer hard on the state of CA a short while ago. Even the diesel guys were almost run out of town. Banks almost lost their business because of it. No manufacturer from that state is allowed to manufacture a product that defeats a emmision component. No matter off road use or not.
One can apply for a EPA Waiver but once it is registered the vehicle becomes unregisterable for the road. It is then a race car only or in the case of diesel a tractor pulling truck or farm truck.

Hopefully some of these shops will leave the state or atleast make shops across the state border, this is a lot of lost revenue.

Gentleman, MRF is working on getting an EPA waiver to continue production of this mid-section. But until the EPA allows MRF to sell these pipes, manufacturing stops.

All hope is not lost and I am working on it!

This is great news!! I'll hold off on picking up an x-pipe until yours are available. Almost pulled the trigger on one too before I saw this. Do you have a time you anticipate you'll get the approval and begin production? Please put my name at the top of the list!!
