Default High flow cat vs test pipe

I'm looking at a labree hfc but the test pipe is cheaper and i don't have much money. Is it worth it to spend the extra on the hfc and pass emissions and not get a cel, or is it better to get the test pipe, get some non foulers and go to a private place to get emissions tests done? any help would be appreciated very much

What did you do about the C.E.L. ? Check engine light.

Still the lowest price I've seen http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/New-B...1%7C240%3A1318

I have a code reader so I just clear the code it a pain in the *** but I love the power and sound. My bro and all my friends drive fully built evo's and they all tell me how good it sounds. I got mine of of ebay too.

If you buy that do not use the gaskets use the stock ones

Yeah someone suggested that I pull the fuse on the light but I didnt want to do that. I am going to tune my car soon though so I wont have to deal with it anymore.
