(I have an SPT exhaust, not loud at all) We continued to go back and forth until he asked me to pop my hood, he wanted to see my "illegal mods." I obliged and pointed out to him that everything was within legal standards. He then tried to say that my turbo was illegal. I actually had to get my book and show him that it is stock. In a last ditch effort, he said that my vehicle matches the description of a suspected drug runner and wanted to start popping quarter panels off. I waved my hand and said "this is not the car you are looking for." He agreed and said "this is not the car I am looking for." He left me alone after that and we both went on our merry way. I've actually had a couple more runins with crabby police officers...
Had a semi-similar thing happen to me.

Got pulled over for going down a one-way street that was poorly labeled (my fault actually, I was looking to turn around). Got pulled over and the officer immediately had my out, patting me down and saying I was 'on something'. He said this over and over, saying he was going to take me to hospital for some drug tests if I didn't confess. I've never done drugs in my life.

After allowing him to search through the car, as I literally have NOTHING in my car for him to even look through, he let me go without a ticket even for the one-way street thing. This was after backup was called and two more cop cars showed up.
