down pipe
I've heard that replacing a new down pipe on the celica is illegal in the United States, is this true??? That's because the celica down pipe has some kind of mods in it. I'm not sure.

thanx

if you're talking about eliminating the catalytic converter.. that varies from state to state, but mostly, yes, it is illegal

i cant find it anymore lol, maybe it was the trial header that came with the down pipe. it was a while ago though, and the trial headers are discontinued right? well hopefully someone has some info for us grin. the downpipe doesnt necessarily have to remove the cat right? its the pipe that goes from the header to the cat, no? i'm not sure if it did remove the cat or no, but i know i saw the set as header and downpipe lol. maybe its lack of sleep from two jobs spineyes??

Edit: it might of been amss, if so i've only heard bad things from them lol. all my searches here say to have a custom down pipe made. my bad lol rofl

no they do not have to remove cat...some pipes are made to remove the cat and some are to replace the stock and leave the cat. There is usually two versions of one downpipe that lets you choose either one...maybe eliminating the cat is illegal? I have no clue but I need to sleep. So Peace.!.!>!>!>!>!>!@>>@>>#>$>>>>^>&>*>>(>)> wave

Downpipes are for turbos exhaust systems. You guys are talking about mid-pipes
