Houston C63's

Have any of you guys here in Houston removed the secondary cats and had any issues (because of the removal) with the emissions testing? I know they don't do the sniffer anymore, but as long as it doesn't throw any codes, then it should be fine, right?

Also, has anyone done the hi-flow cats up front and had issues with codes? I am debating doing my own exhaust creation with some hi-flow cats up front and x-pipe and different mufflers for the rear, while utilizing the stock tips (AMG tips look awesome IMO).

I used to work in League City and go to UH on the same days. 100+miles a day at the least. Good times though. Near South Shore.

Was planning on going there also. I've only seen 1 other C63, black with tinted rear lights. What were your results?

Count me in as well.

J Tran is a good place. I think it is Johnny and Amber over there, right? He did some work on my old Twin Turbo G35 a few years back. Great group of people over there. Only have great things to say about them.

Would be great for a meet over there. Was wondering if they have the gates open on Sundays, or make an exception? Would be really nice!

Yeah, Johnny is good people, he tuned my friend's tt g35 a few weeks back. I just got my car dyno'd for fun because my friend was curious about my power output.

Not in Galveston county, where I live. But I am unsure of how they do actual emissions testing once hooked up to your cars ECU through the diagnostic port. I am guessing the car tells them what it's doing and it has to match the State requirements?

I just don't want to do a bunch of stuff and have my car tattle on me. LOL

Well this thread started as an exhaust question, but looks like we have something forming here in a meet-and-greet.

We need to make a sorta centralized meeting place.... let's hear some suggestions?

Then we need to agree on a date and time that everyone can attend, then make it happen. What say you C63'ers?

I dislike downtown for their dips at entrance and exit parking lots. When I went to UH with Matrix, I always had trouble, and scraped bumper many times. I went to Aquarium last month in C6

I went to Aquarium last month in C63 and had to choose wisely on entering and exiting lots. Every lot had a huge dip and a super huge dip. Pick your poison and pray it doesn't scrape. Just my opinion. If i was in a Honda or a Toyota, it wouldn't matter.

We need to also find somewhere with a nice background so we can take some photos as well.

I wish I could contribute, but I don't really know Downtown very well. I start looking around and see if I can come up with an idea.
