Default blitz nur spec exhaust db limit

i found some website (i forgot which one) that showed the california laws for cars and stuff. it said that the decible limit for the exhaust, measured 50 feet away from the car is 80 db. the nur spec is rated at 104 db at idle and 103 at i think 3000 rpm.

first, is the rating for the nur spec from 50 ft away? and second, has anybody received a ticket with this exhaust because it was too loud?

i have the nur spec cat back and i recently had a run in with the local police. some friends and i were parked at dunkin donuts and the cop pulled in and "inspected" our cars
anyway long story short i had to go to the DMV and get the car checked out. i put the stock exuast back on and the dmv guy said that the stock exuast was a bit loud and he also asked if i one of those "fancy chrome" units on the car. i told him i would never have anything illegal like that*wink wink* and he told me that anything that alters the sound of the car is illegal and i live in CT so the laws arnt nearly as bad as CA

just my .02

no tickets yet. ive had many occassions where a cop with its windows rolled down stopped side by side or behind my car at a light and no issues.

in IL some cops are anal, but they are more into 'smelling' the exhaust (as it will revolke your license for emmissions) than wasting time on a db issue as ricers' exhaust are a lot more annoying.
50ft? at 50cm probably.
