Default Tsudo Exhaust Thoughts

Found this exhaust for a good price and i was wondering if anybody has any experience with it, Also curious if the Catless cutback would effect emissions and regulations when getting an inspection.

Not unless they look under your car. I'm not too familiar with your with your emission laws there but here in AZ I ran my evo 8 with no cat for 5 years and passed emission testing with no problems. Most of the emission test were done with OBD2. Unless you have emission related check engine light codes then you should be okay.

I have just the axleback portion and I like it a lot because its very stubble and not loud. The catback option especially with cat delete might be too loud. I ran my evo catless for 2 years and never got into trouble with cops here in Los Angeles. Pulled over many times but never any issues.... I guess it depends on luck.

This is my concern with a cat less exhaust system as well. It gives you the most HP but it is also the loudest! I plan to keep my cat and try to find a catback that is not too loud. If nothing else, axle back for me. Those days are over for me .

Exhaust looks good, I like the burnt tips, however, the tone of the exhaust still doesnt compare to joez. I was gonna buy this catback but wnnt with joez. Good exhaust for its price, u get what u pay.

The car is just used for commuting and not racing so i don't mind a cheaper exhaust the one i have on my bike was 3 times the price but that one actually gets raced. at the same time i hope i don't end up with a bent rusted piece of ****, i saw a review on here for an 09 i think and they were saying the quality was a little off, granted that was years ago
