if its over the legal decibal limit expect the EPA to go over the car and offer you with a big fine. chances are removing a muffler will put you over, if you arent over already :(

there is nothing about a minimul amoutn of mufflers, they only measure the noise. have to retain the cat if fitted from new but.

Fit a high flow cat and a good quality strait through muffler as far back as possible and you should be ok.

but you cant get the defect notice cleared until you pass the re-test, and if often takes months before you can actually take the test


Stupid EPA

That's only if you get sent to McLeod.
If you just need to go to a shop to get it tested, they'll be quite happy to put on your stocker, test it, then put the loud one back on for you for a few dollars.
