^^^ yeah, you can live without them for as long as you want!
i was looking at an ansa sport and i coulda got one for about the same price as the bosal. but some sites listed that i needed an ansa center pipe for an additional $50, and some said you just need to cut the pipes to fit.
i basically didnt get the ansa because there were too many unanswered questions and my budget was a bit tight.
but i have to say, the bosal is throaty in its own right. it sounded much better than the old one. i was decently surprised by it.
if you do get that exhaust off, run it without it for a minute, its a hoot
