    Keep it clean

    I got nailed for a loud exhaust in my previous car and it wasn't that loud it all.

    Bottom line is it's illegal. You can whine about it all you want, but the law is the law and short of getting a silencer put on or an extra cat to quiet it... you're screwed if you get cited.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the throaty roar of the subie... but instead of complaining.. do your research next time before you mod your car.

    The cops are always gonna crack down on tuners weather it's window tint, aftermarket lights, or exhaust noise.

    Rise above my young brotha... rise above.

    there's no magical answer, if it's loud there's not much to do aside from replacing it.

    Ive always been honest when it comes to getting pulled over. I tell the cop my exhaust is to loud and my windows are to dark. Most of the time it works, they respect young honest people.

    NOTE: If you run a turbocharger beyond itís compressor efficiency range, it will turn into a flame thrower.
