Guys, im looking into getting a redback exhaust (Without rear muffler) and wanted to know what sort of "Loudness" i would be getting. I have a pritty heavy right foot and dont want to be pulled over by the cops. If anyone has a recording of their car with a simmalar exhaust it would be greatly appreciated!

- MIKE!

its sort of like my question .... however the difference with you and me is that i wont have P plates displayed, which is cop bait.
so take that into consideration too.

it depends where u drive too..some areas cops are alrite... and there are others who are just on a power trip.

the police havent picked me up tey (knock on wood), but they go a friend of mine, he has a vn 6 with stock headers, and a red-back cat back. he got an epa notice, and had to report to a testing station, so we put the second muffler on, an got it tested. with a 2 muffler red-back he scored 94db, but the tester knocked it down soo he'dd pass.

his car screems cop bait tho, vn hot 6, full group-a kit , oh and P plates


p.s. next audio test and tune we should do some exhaust testing...lol.
