What's the best exhaust/muffler shop do you guys recommend around this area? Is there a shop or place that would also buy back a stock hatch sport exhaust?
Unlikely a shop would buy back. Just gonna go in the scrap pile-worth more that way. However, if I were you? I'd keep it just in case you need it to pass a smog inspection.

I've taken my truck to El Camino Muffler in Santa Clara. Probably would take the car to @38carmodz (IG).

It's a catback exhaust. So it should pass smog I think. It doesn't mess or touch the cat. Only upgrading the exhaust, the front pipe and downpipe (cat) will be left alone. It also has dual rounded mufflers and is less than 95 dB so it should be good right?

I'm not a smog inspector but I would think so.

Yes, you will be fine with a cat-back.

Looking to set up a meet here real soon y'all. I am just gauging interest levels at the moment.

Unfortunately I will be skipping this one. Got sick and tested positive. Hope to be there on the next one after.
