I'm curious as to how this would affect a New York state inspection. Any ideas?

I got my answer. It will not affect inspection. However this just may be loud enough to get me a ticket. I think I'm going to need a stealth exhaust in this great state.

I have done this mod. And would say a stealth exhaust is 4 times louder than this mod. It's actually quite quiet. And all but a whisper cruising at 2k. Just enough to give this 4 banger some life without making it something it's not.

What do you say RED?

Alright, alright.

I'd say quieter for sure. But hey. Perhaps it depends how you like to drive it.

I was going to edit, but why not a fee bump!

So I was taking into consideration what volume this would be in the city. Took a cruise around downtown, and I'd agree with RED. It is louder. Guess I'm too used to the Chevy 350 with 3 inch short pipes and Flowmaster muffler. lol

Well a 350 is always going to be louder lol

I still think until an actual catback comes out this works well lol

Do you have a phone that you can download a dB meter on? I'd be interested in knowing what the actual level is (idle) at the tip. What I don't understand is every car I've had has only had 1 muffler and not this loud. Why two and why is the effect so great removing one? Even if it doesn't give an hp increase you're still cutting what, about 15-20 pounds? Every little bit helps.
