We don't have bike inspections in Ca, but they may one day and i always keep any mods i do limited to reversible mods. If you are forced to have it tested, all you need is tuneecu and a PC. Change back to stock pipes, load stock tune, go for test, reinstall illegal pipes and tune.

that said, theres a post about a company doing head work and cams to the Tbird that adds something like 30HP. Thats great, but it's a mod i would never do if i lived in a state where they do testing unless the idea of a very big and heavy doorstop is appealing to you. Even here where they don't test i'd be wary of it because if they start testing tomorrow i have a doorstop.

A question for Mag10

Have you got a picture of the covers that were fitted to hide the "squiggle" bend, were they supplied by British Custom as part of the kit or are they from another supplier ?

The squiggle "bend" is the one thing stopping me from buying a set of Hog Slayers, so you may have solved my problem.

Cheers Chopper.....
