Totally owned that cop..

Allright so i was on my way home from work just casually driving when i notice a bike cop behind me with his lights on. I pull over to the side and the cop asks for the usual information then says "sir i pulled you over because of your exhaust". At first my heart dropped cuz i live in Cali and i have an ORP but i quickly replied "theres nothing wrong with my exhaust officer, my car is completely stock besides a cold air intake i just added". He gives me a puzzled look and proceeds to look under my car. At this point i thought i was done for...being that not having a CAT on a new focus means big time fines in this lovely state i live in. The cop now gets back up and says "well sir everything looks good under here, i suppose your intake is causing the excess noise. Have a good day." and he took off. I just sat there in dis-belief...then after about 30 seconds of that i just started busting up in laughter. I guess the cop had no idea what the hell he was looking at when he went under the car.

Anyways just thought id share this with all the ORP owners in here. That totally made my day.

On a side note (and the reason this is in performance chat)...has anyone experimented with different mufflers to try and give the car more of a rich sound and not so ricey cuz of the ORP? I'm not about to spend hundreds on a new exhaust but i would be willing to get a muffler if it helps.
