Guys I bought some high flow cats that were supposed to be 50 state legal, but California passed a law that all cats installed after Jan 1st of 2009 have be stamped with OBDII Certs and the CARB certification. Be careful what you buy or install. I have to buy a used stock H pipe and install it since my stock was modified with a universal cat, but after so many miles the stock cats wont be allowed if they are outside of there warranty period and you will have to buy these special cats that are stamped.

Subject Top Page: Aftermarket Catalytic Converters

Read this webpage before buying what some people call a 50 state legal catted x or h pipe. They are wrong!

Thanks guys!

This might sound dumb, but if I lived in Cali and I put an aftermarket high flow cat mid pipe on my car, how are they going to know when I put it on? Just asking.

They require visual emission system inspections. California even has mobile roadside inspection stations.

But how will they know the exact date you put them on. This sounds more plausible but I think this is another "California bans black cars" type deal going on.







Oh yeah, South Carolina FTMFGDW and its no inspections and no front license plates.

We have no emissions or front plates in WV, but they DO check for cats.
