    Duals? Eveyone thinks 2 mufflers, 2 cats, 2 tips is duals. If it has a crossover it is single exhaust.

    You can disagree all you want, state of CA says if it has a crossover its single exhaust.

    You're also not gonna pass smog with duals and a crossover ... tried that, didn't work. If it didn't come from the factory that way or wasn't an option, it won't show up on the computer as an acceptable exhast set up. If you want to argue it, it won't be with the guy at the smog station, you'll have to see a referee. Good luck there!!
