Message:
I have a 2002 CC R/T that I just purchased 2 weeks ago. I plan on doing quite a bit to the engine (regular bolt on's and an ATI Procharger, or possibly a blown 408 stroker build-up). I am wanting to run true duals, and plan on purchasing jba headers, either cutting the existing y-pipe where it comes together or having one fabricated. Having 2.5'' or 3'' pipes going back from the y-pipe into two seperate carsound high flow cats, into a fabricated x-pipe into two seperate flowmaster 50-series mufflers then on back into either dumps or crome tips straight out the back. My question is: with emission standards becoming more stringent here in the Dallas metroplex begining the first of the month, would this setup give me pretty good gains along with still being emission's legal?

Congraduations on your new truck. There is just one thing that I don't understand. If this is a brand new truck why did you by a new one to trick out. Why didn't you get one a year or two old if you might change the whole engine..? It seems you might exceed what is covered by the warranty if you do all the mods it sounds like you want to do. Anyway, best of luck to you.

You might want to do some normal mods first, a few guys are getting 13 second 1/4 miles times with out superchargers, nos, or strokers. BTW- your exhuast should be fine with 2 cats.

Make sure you're dumping behind the axel. I believe that's the law here in TX.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm not planing on changing out the engine for a couple years, just stating what I have planned. So I didn't get the posts like "your going to loose low end torque" and others like it. When it comes to warranty I'm not all that worried about it because I am in the buisness and can do all of my own work. I was just wondering if anyone else had done the same to their exhaust and had an troubles getting it inspected.

I live in Houston, and mine is dumped in front of the axle. Not sure but I think it only needs to be past the cab of the truck, unless different counties have different rules.
