In California, effect Jan 1, 2019 new exhaust law.
I heard someone said if you install aftermarket sport muffler into your car. Too loud sound from muffler is illegal as You might get fined $1,000.

Several years ago, my supervisor had a Corvette with modified muffler to make it loud and fast. One day CHP pulled him over and found illegal modifications. They were going to impound his car but instead gave him ticket. He went back to stock and sold his Corvette.

Yep it's a bad law! It is totally unfair. It happened to my brother's friends in California a while ago. My brothers are car enthusiasts know the day will come. My brother's friends moved out of California to WA, AZ and TX for one of the reasons like this. I predict car enthusiasts will move to NV or AZ once the law is enforced.

Your supervisor could have moved here in San Antonio. Where I live is full of Corvettes, Ferraris, Lamborginis, and Range Rovers!

I know a co-worker that has worked on muffler mods installed in classic cars like the Mustang, GTO, etc. He mentioned long term use will develop weird clunking noises. He wants to go back to 8+ cylinder engines rather than bothering to make efficiency engines look bigger! :lol:

I've seen plenty of Range Rovers around here rarely seen Ferraris or Lamborghinis in the Bay Area. Nothing in California surprises me anymore.

My Mazda has stock dual exhaust in the rear, one on each side. I've seen there is aftermarket muffler modification for my SUV for $1200... I'll pass. :lol:

B-B-But it's Florida! It's hot and humid. lol. My cousin received a ticket for his dark tint windows. Guess where he was? Arizona. I know cops don't like dark tint windows because they just want to see everything in vehicles for their safety. Hubby's Mazda6 Touring has dark tint windows, too.

California is falling apart. Too many scandals going on at once in California. Despite all of that, I'm a CA native and I love the geography of California.

what? no, CORKSPORT oil can kit is just clean engine for avoid carbon buildup as poor gas mileage. no performance engine. I didn't install aftermarket sport muffler.
