    Hi - does anyone out there know anything about California Emissions? I want to go with a dual exhaust system on my 2014 but I don't want any issues when it comes to passing a smog test here in California.

    Any advice?

    Thanks!

    Oh one or two.
    I have the TRD kit on mine you shouldn't have any issues unless you mess with the cats.

    I've got no intentions on messing with the cats - just wanted to replace stock muffler with a 2 out (Flowmaster, MagnaFlow, BAM, etc....) and run the pipes straight back. But the last thing I want is for that configuration to cause me not to pass CA smog.

    As @jlee said, you will be fine with any modification after the cats. Both my parents were mechanics and smog techs in California most my childhood (and I was working in their shop since I was 12). There are no emission laws after the cats

    For the record, I just had a Flowmaster 50 series, dual in/dual out muffler installed.

    They didn't touch anything upstream of the muffler so there will be no surprises 5 years from now when my first smog is due.

    As a side note, IT SOUNDS AMAZING!
