Backstory is pretty much that I took my car to the shop for an SRS light issue and while there they informed me that there was a Crack in the exhaust manifold. For them to fix it, it was going to cost $1700.
After a little research I found out for around $500 I could do a full exhaust swap from Headers to Catback exhaust. My question though is: would the car remain street legal with the following things installed/modifications.
Megan Headers 4-1 > Random Tech B-Pipe with Cat-Converter > EX catback exhaust
(o2 Sensors extended for changes of Cat-Converter locations)
The idea with that setup was that being that on the LX the exhaust manifold had the cat-converter in it, and I cant take that out and remain street legal/pass emissions testing in Maryland. So I was simply moving the Cat-Converter to the B-pipe and going to extend the o2 sensors as needed. My concern though is that the Megan Headers aren't listed as street legal. But I can not see how these would have a change on the emissions. I'd understand if I just replaced the manifold with the headers and didn't have a cat-converter and ran test pipes. But thats not the case.
I'm not looking for performance boosts really. I just want the car to be fixed and not pay huge amounts of overhead from the dealership. I also figured if I could I might as well replace some of the rusted out parts so I went with the idea of a full exhaust replacement.
