Need a replacement cat, best route?

Title pretty much sums it up. I plan on moving to CA after I graduate so I need to keep it emissions friendly.

being in cali, the converters have to be in the same location as stock...so find some from a partout that are good, or something like that.

unless you know a 'special' inspection station...

You could consider keeping it registered in AZ.

I'm moving to California, and my car is staying registered here. I'm sending my aunt money and she sends me the tags. We do it with my dad's jeep. The only thing he cant do is get decals for base. Well he could, but he doesn't want to sacrifice his credibility.

Awsmgy where in ca? I know a special place go to banditexhaust.com and buy from him. Insanely cheap and legit. Just satin :P

Battousai direct fit is no different from universal the cat is the same. It's just about which I easier to put on, go universal. Much cheaper in the end when a shop welds it on

It's either going to be San Diego or San Francisco. Just depends on where I can get a job.

It's pretty much the same as stock. If you're looking for something that sounds like it's not there then you will be disappointed, because all cats quiet the exhaust down a good amount.

somewhere between like 2-5 more HP I think. Unless its an ancient cat from like the 70's or 80's those were the real restrictive ones :P new factory ones are usually just as good as any aftermarket ones.
