Lol I got pulled over last week. He saw me leaving a parking lot and pulled me over. When he got to the window he said your car is excessively loud, what did you do to the muffler? I told him that I took them off and he asked how? did you just cut them off? I told him no that I bought a muffler delete kit. He then asked if I knew that it was illegal to modify my exhaust I replied no. After he ran my info he told me he was going to do me a favor and not cite me, but told me I needed to put mufflers back on. My car has an offroad x pipe and slp loudmouths.

I got pulled over for my exhaust, I was at a stop light and the cop was two cars behind me, I pulled away and wasn't going over 25 and he pulled over and said my car was too loud and asked me who I was trying to impress, I told him no one, I was just coming from a car show. He gave me a warning but told me I need to stay out of his town or it'll be a 500$ fine. Slp longtubes x-pipe and lm1.

i've never been pulled over with either the GT or v6, but i'm sure if you're getting on it enough to get noticed you'd get tagged.

Ya not the first time, I stay out in Joliet IL so the police have bigger things to do then worry about loud exhaust or no front plates

A conservation (tree cop) police had a chat with me at a red light too, he just was asking about the car and what I had done, he asked if I raced it, "only at the track officer" haha he smiled and said sure...

Only time I got pulled over for loud exhaust was in my colbalt, I had stock exhaust and just a flowmaster, it was so quite. But it was in a yuppie town with nothin to do

I've been thinking on getting an o/r h and I know I won't be as nearly as loud as the modular motors but I don't want to get tickets for it either. Is the gas smell very prominent when you drive?

I have an o/r x and I only smell when I first do and oil Change and that's only the first few miles and only when I rev it in neutral

I imagine they check for cat's and if you dont have any you get a fine~ and have to prove it was fixed etc~ they probably rate it on how many DB's it is and every area may differ~

I just have a catback and mine is LOUD I have no interest in pulling off the cats lol

In California, any car pre 1973 or 75, can't remember, is exempt from any smog regulations. That's why I want a classic so bad

Older than 76 in Cali. So 75 and older. Anything newer needs smog

The smell of fuel is directly related to the tune. You WILL smell some fuel when you go O/R but it's intensity is in relation to the fuel trims.
