Default J Pipe for 05 Honda Accord Coupe v6?

Hey guys I have a few questions about which J Pipe to get.

My considerations are ATLP, Richies RV6 V3 Jpipe and XLR8's pipe

I am looking for the most Torque in mid to high RPM. HP isnt that big of a deal.

Ground clearance is also a huge factor. I go over speed bumps everyday in the parking garage and I need something that will provide stock ground clearance.

What do you guys recommend?

Also Xlr8 website lists their pipe will fit a EX accord what about the other trims? RV pipe will fit all trims.

I have been reading a lot, but I don't have any hands on experience with someting like this.

Also am I going to NEED a test pipe or will everything bolt on to where the stock pipe was?

And am I going to be able to pass inspection with the catalytic removed (some of these are race j pipes and i've heard in past anything "race" when it comes to exhaust won't pass inspection)

Anything to do with inspection we'd have to know where you are. California won't pass anything without a CARB certificate. Other places can be anything, but just because you HAVE inspection AT ALL says they probably have some rules.

Again, I don't know the inspection laws in TX. As Jim stated, do those sites at least state that they are 49 state legal?

A catalytic converter is required by law in all 50 states. The only difference is some places don't bother to test, or look under to see if the converter is actually there.
