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 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.
