Default Quick question on my 2004 rsx type S?

I have an after market full piping exhaust on my car and I need to smog my car in June.

My check engine light came on when I put on that exhaust. I was wondering if I need to put back my stock OEM exhaust inlcuding my OEM catalytic converter in my car in order to pass smog?. Or can I just connect my OEM catalytic converter and keep the aftermarket muffler in order to pass smog? Thank you

your best bet for passing smog is to put on the stock exhaust. thats what most RSX owners do. some of the after market exhaust are carb legal but even they can fail,

Unless you have an aggressive race exhaust you are probably fine with just the catalytic converter. If you want to be certain you'll pass, then you can pop on the exhaust too.
