Does it cause a drop in fuel mileage

It's a hollow can, just helps quiet the cabin. Don't see why it would change anything besides the sound .

It only hurts the mileage if you like hearing the sound and run harder to hear it.

Smog

Does it effect smog? Is it required in CA for your smog check?

im definatly planning on doing this myself on my '02 Voy (trash can looks like hell)
I'm just trying to decide on a tip that i should put on. I was thinking maybe one that split into 2 to make it look like its dual?
I was thinking maybe this one:



if not, what would anyone recommend for a tip?

time for a res delete for me too

I was rear ended just before christmas. No real damage to my TB with the exception of the exhaust. The front end of the ford fusion that hit me was DESTROYED. My problem is the factory replacement tailpipe hangs 1 1/2 to 2 inches lower than stock. I measured 8 other TBs in parking lots to be sure. The body shop says that it is how the replacement came from the factory. Aside from the fact that the resonator is already ugly back there, it now hangs way too low for my taste and I plan on doing some 4 wheelin in the spring. I am going to cut out a perfectly good 2 month old resonator to weld in a straight pipe. YES !!! Just gotta find the right tip. I've seen some nice ones in this thread. Gave mesome ideas. I will post pix when i'm done. The site won't let me upload the accident pix . Telling me the upload failed. I know the pic is small enough and less than 4 mb . Weird.
