Welcome to the site!!

Wild guess... you were probably banned from the .org. That tends to happen when someone posts an opinion of business practices of CMF or when someone dislikes something a mod did. Don't take it personal, this place has much more accurate information and much less "rice". :)

yea definitely, I will get some up later. Right now though all I have is an AEM Short Ram, TYC tails, projector headlights, and a Mr. Grille grill (haha). I will be getting the Greddy Ti-C here in a month or so, and i would like to do headers but, there is no way to make them legal so who knows. I am also wanting t put the 4g GT wheels on it but need to save up alittle more $$ ,you know how that goes, and will probably lower it with some coilovers.

Welcome man, I'm from Hollister,**in between Rocky Mount and Roanoke Rapids**

The first site I found was the .org site, but ever since I found the .com, I hardly venture there. Like Hijacker said, you'll find much more accurate info and more people willing to help.

I am using Ripp's 2005 version full length headers. I haven't done any modifications to them. I have always gone to the same little "hole in the wall" gas/inspection station and they have never said anything about emissions being off. I saw them put the tailpipe sniffer on nthe car so I'm sure they checked. I have no check engine codes/lights.

:edit: I forgot to mention that I am using spark plug nonfoulers on my rear O2 sensors. That is why I am not throwing any SES codes :yesway: Total cost for the mod was about $8 + 30mins of work.

are you using a HFC? Oh and was your car a cali spec of fed spec, because if you get rid of those extra two o2 sensors on the exhaust manifolds, won't that throw a code?

I believe a HFC is included with the Ripp headers. I have not modded that at all. My car is a Cali-spec. I still have both rear O2 sensors installed. Like I said they are just pulled out of the exhaust stream a little because I am using spark plug non-foulers. No codes at all.

I have the same thing currently (anti foulers), only I have no cats at all. I plan on getting a high-flow cat installed. I do have zero codes, but want a cat just so I don't get that 10K fine.

Hmm that is awesome thanks for that, i was just worried about getting rid of 2 the o2's. And hopefully I can find me a good "hole in the wall" inspection shop. Also I think I might go with the short instead of the long tube. Ahh i need a better job now. I am getting really excited :fever: hahaha
