a test pipe is to replace the catalitic converter but instead of having all that s*** restricting the flow its just a straight through.

it must be nice to live in a state that you don't have to run a catalytic converter. i just put one on and i think that I have to run two. also no one will ship cat into the great state of Califoinaction.
