yeah, LTs will even make it sound better yet. gratz on the mods. next you should prolly get a high flow mid-pipe or off road one, gears and a t-lok...and that tuner will be even more effective. Are you auto or manual?

The only way to get around LTs that no one mentions is that you can just buy an o/r h-pipe, and buy cats....and have a muffler shop make you a catted shorty h-pipe. LTs are legal....its just that MAC no longer makes catted h-pipes for them.

???isnt moving the cats from the stock location enough not to pass emissions. well visually anyway.

No removing a working cat is illegal. but if you replaced it with a high-flow cat it wold be fine. VA has pretty much the same emission laws as PA does. I have LTs...but i got mine when MAC made the catted h-pipe.

^^ nah he said it had a full exhaust with no cats......so the kid as prolly driving like an idiot, drawing attention to himself and deserved the ticket.


if you really want LTs....have a shop fab u up a catted h-pipe and you wont need to worry about emissions.
