That is not true because all your O2 sensors are before the Y-pipe. You aren't messing with anything emissions related because it is after the cats....just helping out the flow. You have as much a chance of throwing a code from changing your Y as you do from changing your muffler. I did mine about 6-8 months ago and no problems at all.

I think if you lay under your truck for a few mins it'll make sense.

Did you notice any difference in changing out your Y-pipe?

i went with the Magnaflow 18", to me, it just changed the sound, but, then again i have not ever floored it, never tried to spin the tires either

if your looking for more performance, i don't think your going to be happy until your ready to put on a good chip or a tuner, that you can mess with
