Yea! I passed my smog check today. I was a little worried due to the fact that the engine is a federal emmisions and not a Cali. But she blew a clean fart and now I got my new tags and a title in the mail (2-4 weeks though).

Actually it's rather difficult to do so when your still waiting to totally fix it! LoL

On the cats it's easy. Keep your old exhaust and just swap it out when it's time. The process will take about an hour or so to do, but it's worth the effort.

IMHO keep the cats on your new system. There is no reason not too when you can get an amazingly HIGH flow cat nowdays.
