1. in CA its illegal to remove anything that regulates the emissions of the vehicle that came from the factory. as for noise it must stay under 93dB

2. yes it bolts in but it requires you to fabricate a new s-pipe because the flange of the collector does not reach nor does it bolt into the stock s-pipe.

hope it helps!

No person shall operate a motor vehicle with an exhaust system so modified.

(b) For the purposes of exhaust systems installed on motor vehicles with a manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating of less than 6,000 pounds, other than motorcycles, a sound level of 95 dbA or less, when tested in accordance with Society of Automotive Engineers Standard J1169 May 1998, complies with this section.
