I just got a cherry bomb had it hollowed out, and that is my muffer, it will pass inspection, there is a muffler, and it will pass emissions.

Yesterday got a high flow cat, and a downpipe off the turbo installed.


Cost more than a dump though

I will post pics later as far as inspection my vehicles have never been inspected for anything! I do agree if im blasting through a neighborhood with open exhaust past cops I will obviously get in trouble. I f i take it easy in the city limits and let it rip in the country Ill be okay. When its capped its running through the stock setup.

We have a annual state inspection sticker that we have to have. Loud exhaust or bypass (your cut out (caped or not)& his hollowed cherry bomb) wouldn't pass. Thankfully we don't have the emissions thing here. But I prefer the sound of my 64 vettes side exhaust over a aloud exhaust on my 4 banger. For me there is just no comparison.

I didnt realize they actually have exhaust inspections in certain areas what do u guys do with v8 race cars that are streetable no headers only stock manifolds? As far as the v8 sound I agree 100% with u no comparison but I thought we are on a pt forum not a corvette forum those vets are sweet though I just saw a set of those side pipes at wal mart in the auto section next to the fuzzy dice....
