Bought my first WRX about 3 weeks ago and I can't wait to drive it every morning. Too bad I travel (fly away..) so much and hence why I haven't posted yet.
I took my time to find a car that wasn't Modded... next to impossible, so then the next best was with little modificaiton. The previous guy had only replaced some of the exhaust, the downpipe and back to the muffler. He still had 2 peices of the old exhaust in his garage, the muffler and I think the rear exhaust pipe. And put some nice Voxx rims on.
Now my question:
The engine light is on in the car. The guys swore it was caused by the cat as part of the new exhaust, low air flow cat error. I also had an independent inspection done and they confirmed that is why the engine light was on.
Anyways, thoughts on how this should have been done properly? Do I need to get an OEM Cat put back on there? Are there other cheaper alternatives? (obviously I need it to pass state inspection.) I'm looking at the old parts he gave me, and I'm 90% sure I the rear pipe not the midpipe.
Anyways, my lovely new car is an 04 Black Sedan. I live in Texas so any thoughts on what is legal/illegal for exhaust is helpful too.
If anyone has any suggestions thanks!! (I've been digging through some of the old posts but haven't found the answer yet, if there is already a thread just post the link please)
