^ the typical solution to all of my problems. It should work perfectly in your situation too.

In suburbia, a little over a decade ago, I had the same issue. I lived on a hill at the time, so the solution was to park on the street the night before and roll half way down the hill before starting the car while rolling in neutral. When that didn't work, I resorted to throwing ninja stars into my neighbor's front door. It's not something that I'd do now, but it was age appropriate at the time... and I'm Asian, so it's not racist.

I don't want to start a technical debate on local ordnance nose level legality. In the city I live in, as well as neighboring ones, quiet hours are 10pm - 6am. It is your choice to have a modified car that is louder than normal, so it's you who's disturbing the peace. I know the last thing you want to do is slap on an OEM exhaust, but that may be what you have to do if you're not willing to park further away when you start up the car in the wee hours of the morning.

If that doesn't work out for you. Check out these links:

Edit: I didn't realize you were in Sacramento. I don't think these sites will ship ninja stars to you.
