JBA's seem to be better than BBK's because of the tube bends. BBK's has a couple of sharp bends where the JBA's are less restrictive. If I ever get shorties, JBA is the way I am going to go.

JBA's! you live in CA and you wont have to worry about emission testing/ visual when you go for inspection. you could add the magnaflow catted xpipe these will allow for better flow and more power. i am ordering this set up today and will have them installed by the end of april. i live in NJ so this setup wont give me any hassel
