Apparently my car idling in a parking lot is too loud for the local cops here in CT so now I have to go to the DMV to get a loudness test and I think im in trouble. I mean I can see getting harrassed if I was revving up and being a jerk but I was just backing out of my spot after picking up my pizza. Oh well, I have Jet Hot long tube headers w/cats and an SLP Loudmouth. I cut the resonator out and put in a bullet muffler. I think its the addition of my TR230 cam that really got the cops attention with its mean idle. Anyways I need to pass this test so is there any tips any of you guys have on how to quiet her down for a day? Should I just gut the Loudmouth and put the stock back on for a day or add another bullet? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would get a slp dual dual with a cut out.,

Toss the stocker back on for a day.. I'm running around on QTP's with a catted Y and a LM too... that's my plan for eventually when I get pinched.

I agree, the stocker is your best bet.

Yeah I saved my stocker with one clean cut at the axle, so I can slap it back on pretty quick should the need arise.

LOL, ya that was what I was thinking of saying since I picked it up used down in Georgia 2 years ago! Maybe the DMV will have some sort of a heart.

hell it had to go through inspections then, so i would imagine it would be the same now. however if u have the stock exhaust anyway id say throw it on get it through and put the LM back on. was it a local cop or a state trooper? the only people that have problems up in the northern part of the state are the imports, i guess the police officers are tired of how annoying they sound. but to be on the safe side i am usually always stay as low in the rpm's when they are around. :)
