    yea it bolts right up and they call it that because that's all it is, its a straight through pipe with no sound absorbing anything just a pipe

    if you have a good name brand cat back it wont be to loud but if you just run some pipe with a fart can muffler on the back it will be very loud. so make sure you get a good cat back or just buy a bolt in resonator instead of a test pipe

    You really, REALLY need to do your research. I bet if you tired to google all this, it would come right up. And there's always all the reference threads here. Please, do some research.

    screw you and you nonsmog testing state.... i just failed my inspection cause i did that.... psh...

    and 91, if you have to get your car inspected every year for smog you will not pass with a resonator either you have to have a Cat. Converter for emissions testing to pass you, you best bet would be keeping your stock Cat.

    I haven't even spoken to you the majority of the time. But follow the rules. I'm pretty sure it's stated somewhere that you are not supposed to post a thread until you make sure it's not posted already or in the reference section. Besides, I can't stress enough, how much you need to research. I'm not so good at cars, but I know if you google this stuff, you'll find the answer within minutes.
