1) Is English your first language? If not, well done and disregard the next sentence. If it is, slow down and read back what you typed.
2) You have an HKS Fart cannon. Either put the stock exhaust back on and try to appeal, or pay the ticket.
3) If the cop took a picture, you're screwed.
4) Not sure what you are asking about the Perrin. Will it be quieter? Maybe. Just don't drive like an idiot in your small town where apparently there are lots of LEOs.

The silencer should cut down on the noise at it blocks a lot of the flow.
The Perrin catback is probably quieter than the HKS Carbon-Ti.

What it a MA. cop or a Registry official?
What town?

You live in MA. You have already been cited. No one is going to listen to your claims of having a quieter exhaust and no one is going to come out to your car to hear the quieter version.

Just pay the ticket and get it over with. You are going to throw away $25 for the Court fee, plus @least a 1/2 day of work and get nothing for it.

And ... get rid of that loud exhaust because it is going to bite you in the A** again.

ha ha ha, #1 was my first question too but he beat me to it.

If you really got pulled over for an exhaust that means you are one of those nut jobs who punishes everyone within 200 yards of your car everywhere you go. You have to be WAY over the line to get a ticket for an exhaust. Cops do that when a car annoys the hell out of 99% of all citizens, so you deserve it.
Throw that thing in a dumpster where it belongs.

Ease up on the right pedal OP! You must be driving like an as$hole all the time to get pulled over for a Carbon Ti. Putting a silencer on the Carbon Ti will do absolutely nothing except make it sound even worse. I know.
I had the same exhaust on my 02 WRX here in San Diego, CA (Cop central) and in all the years of having that car, I never got pulled over for the exhaust.

As the masses have spoken, you are screwed as far as the citation goes. Pay the fine when you get the notice from the court and call it a day.

I strongly recommend learning how to type a sentence and how to lift up on the throttle so you don't end up SOL on exhaust tickets.

Where in Mass are you. Your pic looks sort of like you're next to the Westfield river but it could be just about any river, I guess.

I'll tell you this much. Small town cops know EVERY SINGLE owner of loud, obnoxious cars. When someone was reported speeding in a neighborhood, driving in a field, just being loud or gathering in a parking lot looking like a flatbrimmer, the cops know where to go. They'll be knocking on doors and they'll question you like you're a criminal. I know this because I have a teenage dependent and I was stupid enough to buy him a used WRX. His car was loud and obnoxious and I got tired of cops knocking on the door when it wasn't him (and that was always the case....he'd drive up the driveway and the cop would take one look, see that there's a front plate and no wing and say "it wasn't him").

My advice. Either put on the stock exhaust or if you sold it, kick yourself and look around for a stock exhaust to buy. Put it on the car. Keep those stocker wheels. Avoid stickers (which scream "I'm 16 and fight the power) and pretend there's a cop behind you all the time when you drive.

If you get a ticket, hire a lawyer. Yup. Why? Insurance hits. Expect to spend $1000 on that exhaust ticket if it sticks.

Want to learn to be a race driver? Go to autocrosses. Learn. Loud cars aren't fast...they're just loud.

If you are running a downpipe and a tune the stock exhaust from there on back won't cost you any hp until you get to about 350whp. Even with a VF turbo, hp won't be affected, so find a used stock exhaust and put it back on.

Speaking from personal experience.

OP lives in many small towns in his area. He's either super rich and can afford to buy a new stock exhaust. Or he lives in his car and will need to find the cheapest used stock exhaust he can find. I'm assuming the latter, so he should bolt the stock exhaust back on the car and call it a day.

Yikes. The exhaust doesn't actually sound too loud, but it does sound worse then I ever imagined.

Not to make a bad situation worse, but in MA exhaust tickets are points on your license and your insurance rate will be affected. Mass State Police are also cracking down on ride height, so keep that in mind as well as that will also be points on your license/insurance.

Not true. It entirely depends on your insurance company and the point system they use which is entirely different than the state system which is basically used to keep track of your violations for the insurance company to monitor your driving record.

A resonator (like a vibrant) would have likely taken the rasp out of that exhaust note. It sounded like crap! But that's just me.... And the cops obviously.... Oh, and the people replying here... And the people in the next state over. Lol.

At any rate, maybe you don't have to go stock per say. Somewhere on this forum, a good fellow started a spreadsheet with decibel levels of various exhausts. You can take a look at that and get an idea of some of the quieter exhausts. Or do a search for "quiet exhausts" and browse through the 4 million threads where people have asked about which is the quietest. Also get one with stock looking tips so it's not as outwardly noticeable.

I grew up in Mass. Went to school in MD, and now live in NY.

NY has the least offensive inspection process of those three, though NY State added emissions during the time I have lived here (when I first moved here they did not even test emissions and it was not unusual to see cars driving around blowing blue smoke everywhere), MA always had emissions, rust inspections, etc, MD I only went thru inspections a couple of times.

MA has its share of local police departments, and frankly if you want to do mods that call attention to your car, they are happy to oblige you.

There are also small town police departments that self fund via speed traps (Colrain...middle of nowhere on Route 2, is one), but there are also those in NY State (welcome to Schodack), and for extra special attention, NY State Park Police are a division of NY State Police, and they like to park at the entrances to NY State Parks (Grafton, Thatcher State Park) during the off seasons and run speed traps, because they have nothing else to do all winter. I love how they enforce very slow speed limits, enacted to protect the large numbers of people who visit those parks in the nice weather, when nobody at all is in the park. Logic.

How high did you rev to in that video? If it was only to 2-3k RPM it might be considered too loud but if that was 4-5k RPM it's a little more reasonable.

Before you go back to stock, ask some exhaust shops how much it is to get a resonator put in. There are a few lengths, so maybe get the longest one you can.

Not true. The point system is used by all MA. Insurance companies. It is not on a company by company basis.

And, I am quite sure getting a ticket for loud exhaust WILL affect your insurance premiums, no matter what company you use.

MA. Laws have been changing and these changes are not advertised.
A light out WILL get you a ticket, fine and surcharge.
Going through a yellow light WILL get you written up for going through a red light, fine and surcharge.

The big thing is IF you get pulled over, what the cop is like or maybe I should say, how much of an *** he/she is.

You're wrong. MA insurance companies are not required to use the SDIP system. You have to call you're insurance company to see what system they use.
