    I want a stock downpipe for my 2017 Ecoboost. I want to make a stealthy catless downpipe for California's crappy smog laws, so it can be working or not. I would just prefer it's not all cut up. Willing to drive anywhere in central or southern California. I also don't mind paying shipping if it's reasonable. (Shipped to 93304)

    Let me know if you have one sitting on your shelf collecting dust!

    Plan on passing any emissions tests?
    The catless.pipe will never show 02 sensors ready.
    unless you plan on swapping the stock pipe for inspections (which I have to do every year)

    Well, I have a CARB tech friend who is able to pass my cars regardless, but if I do ever need to do a legal smog check or if I have to take the car in for any warranty work, I’ll swap on my OEM downpipe that will be on my shelf. I just live in an area where cops are very much against car modifications and I’d like to be sneaky about my catless downpipe in an OEM pipe.

    Here in Southern California they actually will pull your over and if they feel as though your car isn’t compliant with our laws, they will require you to get your vehicle checked over by a state agency to verify it’s all following state laws. I want to avoid that as much as possible.

    I can give away the whole catback if you can pick it up here at bay area. Just sold the car and don't have the place for the parts.

    You say cat back; would that include the downpipe? I’ll gladly come pick it up to clean up your garage if it includes that!

    My bad, I thought down pipe was part of it. It turns out it’s not. Never mind.
