think about the EPA as a chance to prove your innocence, only downside is, it costs you to prove that innocence.. go figure..

Marshall, your car will be too loud, I can tell you that, mine sounds quiet, but is 102dB at 3000rpm - remember a ghia is tested at 3750rpm, or 3900, can't remember.


urgh, well if yours is 102db then mine is definately too loud.

why are ghias tested at a higher rpm? mine is a series 1 so it doesnt have the xr6 driveline.

went there this morning and they wouldnt test it as ive changed the plates on the car since the notice was issued :evil: URGH

oh well, ill just have tyo see if they'll fit a stock exhaust, do the test and then ill have the old one put back on.

Oh, apologies, i thought yours was a series two. Just make sure the exhaust place knows this before they test it, they test the ticky engine at a higher rpm. Where are you getting the test done?
