its probably officially legal..

..but my brother in law, a CA police officer, said they can site you on any aftermarket exhaust, and if it exceeds the legal sound levels then thats a whole other thing...

We did have a TSE customer who was pulled over in CA and the officer performed the sound level test.

According to the customer, the TSE was below the maximum dB level and he was let go without any ticket.

Hop that helps!

Wow in CA they will really pull you over for a loud exhaust?
Do they actually carry some kind of decible meter or something?
Don't they have anything better to do
