Just need a header and O2 cheater. Thats what im running and have no problems at all. You can just reuse the gaskets and bolts. Also get a flex pipe, a restriction is a restriction!

Any header that remove the cat needs an O2 cheater. I prefer using a chip to do this though. The "cheater harness" tricks the ECU into thinking the cat is still there, the chip tells the ECU to not even bother checking. In the real world either works. If you're gonna get a chip anyway I'd get one with race header program, if you don't plan on getting a chip just go with a cheater harness.

Funny thing is, with the FC race header, my o2 cheat went bad and threw a CEL. So we removed it, and just plugged both sensors in like normal, it's been almost 6 months and no CEL, with out the o2 cheat.
It's weird, but I never get any o2 codes. I dunno.

well i don't know about other states but i have found in the past you can get a 1 year wavier's with coilovers.it is a little trick lower the car as low as possible go to the sniffer carefully and they will not be able to put it on the rollers and they will tell you to back up and go to the front desk.you go there and they sign your paper work with a wavier you don't even have to pay.so i don't care about emmesions.

With that Magnaflow, yes, it will be annoyingly loud, your neighbors will HATE you
. If you get a resonator though, it wont be as bad, yet still loud.
