OK so I just picked up my '02 WRX. Its my first subby, first turbo car, and first AWD car, so although im pretty well versed in cars in general, i always stayed more on the domestic side. I'm definatly loving the car, its a great DD and i cant wait for a little bit of snow to play in. I fot the additional 3/36 waranty on the car, so it wont be getting any mods till thats over, thanks to all the tranny horror stories ive heard about these cars.
I've been reading around on the site for the last few days, and one question keeps comming back to me in regards to the u/d pipes.
So these pipes have our cats in them, and everyone keeps saying to dump the cat'd pipes for straight pipes. Isnt this going to cause the car to fail emissions testing? (yes i unfortunatly live in a state that does test them), or is there another cat somewhere after the downpipe that I dont know about.
