Just want to be sure this correct and that it won’t un-do anything.

It also has this exhaust…

he mentioned that…

"I’m not sure how the downpipes will effect the test. You could reinstall the factory ones temporarily. If you do, you will have to run map 1 while the factory downpipes are on. Map 2 requires the aftermarket downpipes."

Naturally, I am hopeful that I won’t have to do that and am wondering if anyone has a few minutes to clear this up for me and let me know your views. This is all foreign to me.
Here in CA I think they don't require smog checks for new cars (upto 6 years old).
