    I don't know how the law is down there. But 84 is the cut off in NY also. I just did a TRUE dual exaust on the 89. 2-21/4 cats and a pair of Flowmasters. all the to the rear and out the side. This way it's "cool dool" and emmission legal!!

    I have no idea about Texas exhaust laws, however I do know that several aftermarket manufacturers offer high-flow catalytic convertors. Maybe someone who runs one will step in and offer some more useful advice.

    I didn't go with "high flow" cats. The motor is all stock and most likely will stay that way. The 89 is the wifes truck. "mall rated". Anyways, I got to Catco universal cats from JC Whitney for 51.96 each. I got a couple of 40 series flowmasters for 60.00 each and bent most of my own pipe! a little under 300.00 for the whole set up. But 100% legal in NY!
