Legally, Probably not. Otherwise it should run better, Keep in mind, the boost will increase a pound or two from the decrease in back pressure. It may also be helpfull to know someone who will inspect the car for you!

i agree with brian...depending on when you have to get your sticker, leave it on until then..once you get your sticker, remove it

New ma. law
Vehicles built before 1996 will no longer be required to undergo emission testing, So i can get a sticker no matter what :)

Will it be ok for the boost increase?

I believe this pertains to probing the exhaust. If MA laws are like NY, pre '96's will be required to pass a visual of all factory installed polution equipment.
