I know there is a $10,000 fine for any shop that doesn't put a catalytic converter on an exhaust system on a vehicle that originally came with a catalytic converter. However there is a loop hole, even if your car originally came with a catalytic converter if you remove it yourself prior to having an new exhaust system put on, the shop does not have to put a catalytic converter on the car when they put an exhaust system on.

arch I don't even know of any vehicles that come from the factory with an X or H pipe, but if they're are any I doubt it's illegal to not replace and x/h pipe as it has no effect on the pollutions emitted from the vehicle.
