as far as the smell, you get used to it to a point. it still sucks in drive thrus. I'm running two 200 cell race cats from magnaflow and they help a ton! i don't have any noxious smells anymore. but good luck finding after market cats right now. they don't sell in cali if i remember correctly.
Interesting... how do you pass smog? I wouldn't mind driving a little ways if I could pass.

Yeah I would probably put some cats on there somewhere... how did you mount yours? Are you using your post o2 sensors? SES light?

They dont' even sell them for "offroad" use only? I thought that's how they got around those things sorta like selling superchargers or even headers in Cali. If not I guess I could ship them to my relative in Colorado and have them ship it here. I'm gonna do that for my 14rd magazines for my new CZ P01.

i actually had my dad take care of it. he knows a guy that knows a guy that knows a guy.

uhh i'm running o2 sims but as i'm sure you've done your research, they don't completely work. i don't have any cat inefficiency codes but i did get a lean code because the sim doesn't take into effect how the car runs lean on acceleration. that throws a CEL. right now i'm not even using the post o2s. they aren't even plugged in because i'm running sims anyways.

Kalim says that if you do the euro flash and put in osme cats it should pass. i don't think anyone has tried it though.

and i'm not sure about the offroad use stuff. i just thought that you couldn't order any aftermarket cats at all. i could be wrong, i haven't looked into it.

Yeah if I put headers on I was thinking about doing that Euro2 flash everyone was talking about. Hrmm.. things to think about... I will most likely want to get cats.. I don't want my car to smell that bad all the time.

Ahh I know how you feel. I still need to pull my fenders a little bit too and do a bunch of other maintenance stuff. Yeah headers with no resonators might be a little too loud, I wouldn't do that either haha.
