    Will I pass inspection with an up pipe installed?

    I need to replace my pre cat. I need to make a decison on whether to replace it with another pre cat or an up pipe. Will i pass inspection with the up pipe? An up pipe costs $200, Subaru wants $660 for the pre cat parts and labor. Is it hard to install myself?

    Don't use a catted UP - the last one failed for a reason.

    NY requires a visual inspection of the ECDs (cats). However, very few inspectors will look at the pre-turbo cat (I haven't heard of anyone failing from this), so as long as you have at least one thing that resembles a cat in your turboback exhaust, you shouldn't have an issue (and aren't throwing a code for a catless UP).
