mass just screwed me over and im from ct they are tellin me to change my exhaust, is there a performance exhaust that will give me a quiet sound or will a silencer work. I also have an idea to put on a used stock muffler for the day and put my exhaust back on, any ideas?

RS-R ExMag (boasts quietest exhaust note on the market for most applications)

Tanabe Hyper Medalion - about 92 db (if it's a noise issue, under 95 db is good)

 

Apex'i World Sport / WS2 and the Greddy SP2 have the same design as the Tanabe.

Actually Florida law states that any thin you do to you're car that is not stock is illegal. We don't have admissions any more but if a cop wanted to be a weiner he could right a ticket for every thing you have done to you're car. 9 out of 10 time they will not but there is always that one. See I live in St.Petersburg FL. and my cozen is a state trooper and a lot of my friends are cops as well. they keep me pritty up to date on all this stuff.

FHP is a buncha' douchebags. They haven't become too familiar with my Pontiac but they knew my EJ6 all too well.

 

I'm sure I could find loopholes in the "law", Batman. I don't think that's entirely accurate. My girlfriend works for a lawyers office in Tampa..she's EXTREMELY well versed in Florida law. I'll ask her.

Ya theres alway a loop hole but it's just the fact we do have some REALLY odd laws. like the one that says you can screw animals but if a man and woman that are not married and live in the same house and have sex they are guilty of a second-degree misdemeanor

I wasn't ticketed for my Toda header, my catback, any part of my suspension (which was green and you could see it well) or intake.

 

He did however pound my ass over my window tint and a couple other doodads.
