I know many cops out here and most say they wont pull you over unless its pretty obvious your gunning it and getting your rpms high. I have a magnaflow catback on my stang and ive never been pulled over for it. I dont know if you are familiar with mundelein cops they are one of the worst cops in the area. They harass the **** out of people and they have never pulled me over for it

You should be ok with any chambered catbacks. Its the slp resonators and glasspacks and off road mid pipes that will land you in trouble. Where I'm at all the law says about exhaust is that you can't run open headers and you should have cats. But as there is no emissions testing whatsoever, most guys get rid of them... I will be someday soon...

I have never been stopped for loud exhaust but a police officer did stop me in a 7-11 parking lot to ask me what kind of set up I had he said he liked the tone
