if you buy a hotshot header, then it comes with 02 sensor bungs in it already, and is CARB legal as far as i know.

if you buy a stromung exhaust, you have to make sure you buy a cali model exhaust, as they sell diff. models for cali and federal. cali models come with bungs in them as well so you wont need to go and have them welded in.

you wont need to change the ECU, and i beleive the stromung is CARB legal too, but you might wanna look into it

Any header for any Nissan motor is NOT C.A.R.B legal. You will fail the visual test, o2 sensor or not. What you can do is a cat back. I had the Hotshot header, and the stromung exhaust on my sentra. Each time I had to smog, I had to replace the header with the stock manifold to pass.
If you go with the stromung cat-back, get the correct model for your car. They will ask you all they need to know.
Leagally you can modify the intake, and anything behind the cat. But some places are anal about the intakes, and will fail you on the visual test.
