thanks for the write up.

any plans to install the cobb downpipe?
and if so, will the dp +cat back exhst still pass emissions and meet the limited noise restrictions?

i looked at the downpipe w/ the cbe exhaust from cobb but was concerned about flunking emissions and getting extra fisheye from the fuzz. neither would be good. i think the OC cops have a special eye out for the tuners these days.

Ill be doing the downpipe next. No, it will NOT pass Ca emissions due to the removal of one cat, with 1 high flow cat added and moved, from its original location.

What i will tell you is, if you go with a DP regardless who makes it, the Catback from Cobb will keep it quiet and the cops wont even look at you.

The front section is quite light. The heaviest part is at the muffler. The rear exhaust tip section is very light. No idea on weight.

Find someone(haltech?) who bought the catback to look up their tracking number and see if fedex/ups gives the weight of the package?
