Default Exhaust ticket in MD

Hi,

Just got a ticket for modified exhaust / excessive noise. Has anyone had any experience with this? I am currently running a turbo xs cat back with an uncatted downpipe. If I replace just the muffler, would that suffice?

Wow, sorry about that, usually it's just a warning. Just got to say you bought it like that, or it was fixed the gasket must have blew or just make some b/s up. Unfortunately if you got the ticket in your local town I'm sure that cop will keep an eye out for your car so mabe your best option would be to run a little more modest setup.

i've never had any type of noise related ticket before. I am a bit dissapointed to say the least.. Do you think the inspector is going to fail me for having an EWG? I am not sure how to go about this. Revert everything to stock or just simply change the catback.

I would just change the catback and call it a day. Then if he pulls you over again tell him you changed it idk

Disappointed with the fact the you got a ticket for having aftermarket exhaust...? Didn't you know this could happen the moment you switched from stock?

Yeah, you're right. I knew this was a possibility when the modifications were made but I still am disappointed at myself, because I always try my best to drive carefully and quietly.
