Test pipes?

My catalytic is going out and need to do something about it soon. I want to performance my 92 Lude, but my friend said here in California it can be up to 3000 dollars of a ticket. What is your guys take on this?

Re: Test pipes?

Just buy a catalytic converter and have it replaced. Adding just a few horsepower with a CAT delete isn't worth $3K. Invest the $$ in a Turbo setup instead!

Seriously!

Re: Test pipes?

Test pipes = engine lights. I put one in my lude and my check engine light popped on The next day. I just went out and got a high flow cat. In Cali u might only b able to get a oem one cause it's a lot more strict there.

Re: Test pipes?

If you're like say Samual Jackson's kid or a Senators kid and have lots of cash, sure go for it.

You can always bribe your way out of a ticket...

But seriously, go to your local shop or a garage you know is cool and does inspections and ask them what's legal.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
