    New to the BACKS!!

    I live in VA and they like to "regulate" exhaust and all that BS. So is it ok to buy a catless turboback or does it have to be catted?? I know they do the annual inspections but wasnt sure if the catless would pass it??

    Oh ya and by the way if you have any suggestions for turbobacks let me know (i was planning on going with a COBB?)

    If you are running a catless exhaust you are 98% going to fail. If they do visual inspections you will fail immediately. You can run some crazy mix of alcohol and some other crap to get around it but I wouldn't.

    If you get a high flow cat and warm it up good before your test there is a good chance that you will pass.
