Yea that's why I would like to do it is for room. I have a catch can and would like to move it to around there. But don't know if I want to lose torque. Thanks for the reply.Shouldn't, I'm running the same setup. Should be fine. I personally don't know if the intake is worth it performance wise. I felt like I lost a little low end torque but it does look pretty.
What code would the headers throw? All I now of is if you don't have O2 bungs in your downpipes.. unless I'm missing something :Sthe only mod that will cause a CEL is headers on the 3.8 unless you do something really dumb. but basic bolt-ons will not cause any issues assuming you properly install them. Lots of people running full bolt-ons without engine lights.
i do believe the primary cats are actually in your headers on a 3.8. downpipes just have the flex weaved part for fitment. then the secondary cats which you can replace with test pipes and thats it.Did not know that! Are there more cats besides the two in the downpipes and the two at the secondary cats?
the intake would be mainly to reroute my catch can around that area since i have it all the way on the driver side by the fuse box. but i dont know if i want to lose torque. intake sound wouldnt be that big of a lossNah...I'm running a cbe, intake and test pipes.. And it runs fine without any issues. Before I went with test pipes the intake roar was loud. With the test pipes added I can barely hear the intake. Something to keep in mind.
