It sounds ridiculous. When me and my friend were putting a sports exhaust on his EL we thought we would go for a quick drive to hear what it sounded like. It sounded cool idling in the shed but at soon as he drove it it sounded like a tractor with no muffler. Sounded very s**t and wrecked his cat!

As long as the exhaust noise is below 90db measured at 45 degrees from a distance of 1m away from the rear of the vehicle.

Exhaust must exit past the rear door/doors. If its a ute , 2 door or pano its ok for it to exit before the rear wheels as long as its below the max db volume. :idea:
