Thanks Milaad. So essentially, the only modifications done to the LC were both the stock muffler and rear resonator were removed. Then, a new Magnaflow muffler was welded into place and a pipe was welded on where the rear resonator used to be. The remaining exhaust piping is all stock. Not a true cat-back exhaust, but more of a muffler replacement and resonator delete. Fine for my needs. I do notice it is significantly louder inside with most of the drone around 1800-2500 rpm. I actually like the sound, although some people may not agree. I would compare it to my old '12 Tundra 5.7 with the MBRP cat-back exhaust. Similar sound and drone.

Love it but can I pass smog in CA with the same setup?

I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to pass ca smog. The emissions components were not changed so there shouldn’t be any difference in output. However, if you have a strict smog guy, they may fail the visual. Not sure, but I’m not worried about it.

Ok thanks. That’s what I was hoping to hear. If you don’t mind sharing, how much did your muffler shop charge for all the work?

Nice welds. Some of the nicest welds you'll ever see are often on exhausts, which means that nobody will ever see them.
