Out here in cali.. the limit is i think 95db... but i seemed to have lost the silencer to my exhaust hence it made more noise.... anyone help!!!.. :(

either put the stock one on before going to the ref or cross your fingers and hope you're under 95db. $hitty part is that cops can say you're exhuast is too loud but does not have tools to prove so, thats where they write you a ticket and have it measured at the ref. If you have to Smog at the ref too, make sure that you intakes and stuff are legal otherwise swap them for stock stuff. REF is PITA, gone there a few times w/ my eclipse back in the days.

Have you been to STL lately? Here. Look at this. http://www.morganquitno.com/safecity.htm

STL most dangerous baby!

Not that I'm proud or anything.....Oh and we have messed up streets and graffiti too. But you've got warm weather ALL year round, not to mention all the shops and companies that sponsor cars..............Who cares about violence when you can get that bodykit 25% off?

We should trade places for a year. You'll know what definitely sucks when the winter season comes around.

my thoughts are place the stock one on back yourself. It's very simple to remove and install the muffler on our cars since it's a complete bolt on. Don't waste your money by taking it to a shop.

By the way, the fix it ticket is your lucky ticket in my opinion. If they fine you for the loud exhaust, I've seen the ticket go upwards to a few hundred bucks.

Get a TRD exhaust.. its 50 state emissions legal and also sound level wise..
The TRD exhaust also comes with a certificate that this exhaust meets all state requirements and you can't get a ticket for it...

I have this exhaust and its also has a nice sound to it.. I am sure other members who have this will agree
