Do either of you have problems with noise on your center out exhausts? The setup really does make sense for exhaust flow.. the big thing I'm worried about is sound. Will a single 1 in 2 out muffler be enough to keep me from being harassed by the cops? I will be keeping all three cats, being that this /is/ California I live in...

Being that is IS California you live in, you could get harrassed simply by going with one muffer instead of the factory two. PM Lonnie for details on Cali emissons laws.

I think driving down the road in Cali blowing a kazoo out the window and claiming it as performance exhaust will get you in trouble in The Communist Republic of California

Living in the Communist California, I have been surprised I have not been haggled for tinted side windows, too low, no front plate.

Every once in a while they pull me over for speeding, down in LA if I park on the street I seem prone to get them (have gotton 2 no front plate tickets.)

If you do not run cats on a fuel injected car it is apparent bc the noise is much different. The tone is different and I am sure the Po Po's know too.

I have not had any problems with the dual magnaflow all (3 cats) setup I have. It is about the same volume as a corvette. 1-2 split like stock.

In California it is not legal for the cats to be modified at all. If it was cut and rewelded this is illegal. You can replace the A pipe with all three cats with a factory piece at about 1100 bucks. I think you can also have them rebuilt.
If you cut off the 3rd cat you could get fined to the approximate time that the authorities guess it was not messed with which could be up 2 years.

If you get labeled a gross poluter it stays with the title of the car forever like a salvage.

Remove the cats and resonator and you will be asking for it.

You haven't even gotten haggled at the smog stations because of your exhaust?
