There IS a decibel limit that must be met, I used to be pulled over all the time in my old 90 Celica GT All-Trac that had a Cherry Bomb (10 yrs ago when loud=speed in my head )

magnaflow and borla arent even close to being too loud, well at least any state ive ever lived in. they give a nice sound, not loud and obnoxious

I would imagine you would need to do something else to get the cops attention....there are so many people out there with loud exhaust that maybe having tinted windows....speeding or what ever would get you pulled over, then that could be added to the ticket.

I had a loud exhaust on my 02 accord and never got pulled over for it.....even with the short ram, just my 2 cents

SoCal cops (L.A.) are f*cken asses....i live in NorCal now. Got pulled over a couple days after i got my greddy installed....not because it was too loud, but because i was going to freakin fast because i wanted to hear it's sweetness. The exhausts in these threads aren't loud enough for you to get pulled over...but in L.A., a cop will pull u over for no freakin reason....and he might blame ur exhaust. good luck.

they have to have a reason to pull you over and a modified exhaust is a valid reason.

yea it is...but my statement still stands...they are jerks. My friends and I got pulled over one time in Alhambra...we got padded down, the cop asked for the car to be searched (of course my friend said no because the cop didnt have a warrant) then when we asked why we got pulled over, the cop said that my friend's necklace, that was hanging from the rear view mirror, was too big. Sh*t, all 5 of us standing in a neighborhood with people looking at us like we're some thugs just because of a necklace? WTF? That's some crooked sh*t dont you think?

haha... better question would have been, "who hasn't been pulled over for their exhaust" I've been pulled over for mine, so I just put the caps on and left it that way. Otherwise it's crazy sounding. Too much resonance.
