  2. Cork sport cat back legal in CA

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I was thinking of getting the corksport cat back but saw that it requires you to remove one of the catalytic converters. Emissions in CA is a pain, so will removing one the cats make this illegal in CA or any other states that has strict emission controls? Such a nice sounding exhaust.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I moved to California from Missouri and was unfortunately unaware of how strict the California laws are. I have a Corksport air intake on my vehicle and obviously failed inspection when trying to register my car. I am going to be moving to Michigan later this year (where I am able to pass...

    I have been searching around recently for an air intake for my 2011 Hatchback (2.5L engine), but haven't been very successful finding an intake that I can legally use here in California (until about 5 minutes ago). As a result, I figured I would start a thread for reference and ask anyone if...
