Ugh, I was hoping Colorado would be nicer about that. I want to go IS38 on the wagon but not if there's going to be visual inspection. I was hoping to leave that behind in California.
The DP is pretty well hidden behind the turbo and engine, so maybe you could get away with it? Either way I believe an R DP wouldn't line up with the rest of your exhaust.
I have read that it in fact won’t line up? Plus all is38 tunes mess with emissions sensors due to their assumptions that your running an aftermarket downpipe
I’m so confused now LOL.
Wouldn't an IS38 require a new DP (or at least an R DP in the case of an AWD wagon)?
Good question. I just checked their site, and I see they have separate drop downs for “Stage 3 IS20” and “Stage 3 IS20DP,” meaning the former is for stock down pipe cars with an IS20, and the latter with aftermarket DP. There is no IS38 non-DP file, so yes you would need an aftermarket one. The OEM R DP won’t even suffice.
