could also say you have the ford sport tuned exhaust on it which is the ST exhaust that just removes the rear resonator. Still pretty loud from what i remember :)

The best sounding stock exhaust I've heard on a focus for sure!

Hey Midas is good for some exhaust law info. so i called around to state trooper office, sheriff office and dist. court to find out where i can get the DB Test done at everyone of them said they can't and don't kno where i can have the test done, so i called Midas about the test and a guy there asked about my exhaust kit so i told wut i was missing from the stock exhaust. he says i got off very lucky i guess you can not remove the res. camber (like the cat.) cause then its a modified exhaust which in Washington State is a $1000 ticket. Me " HOLY SH**!!!!!!" so i guess i'm realy going stealth. thats just lame

The db test is supposed to be done by the officer. Just trust me the fsw race exhaust is over the limit. In order for them to give you a modified exhaust ticket for removing a cat, they have to prove it first. Like literally go under your car and look and have knowledge of exhaust systems. I would suggest getting an attorney for it and see how they handle it.

I would also go with an attorney and fight it. I did a quick search for exhaust db testing facilities. Might not yield anything, but could get your started.

Try calling them and see if they know where you can get your car tested. I know the iPhone has a DB meter app. Brad has it and uses it pretty often. Not sure if Android has one, though.

Or you can look for something like this:

You don't need an attorney. Just print the rcw's and bring them to court with you. Along with your proof of insurance.

Here is the RCW (read section 3), I would say that it is the sport tuned exhaust.



RCW 46.37.390

Mufflers required — Smoke and air contaminant standards — Definitions — Penalty, exception.




(1) Every motor vehicle shall at all times be equipped with a muffler in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual noise, and no person shall use a muffler cut-out, bypass, or similar device upon a motor vehicle on a highway.

(2)(a) No motor vehicle first sold and registered as a new motor vehicle on or after January 1, 1971, shall discharge into the atmosphere at elevations of less than three thousand feet any air contaminant for a period of more than ten seconds which is:

(i) As dark as or darker than the shade designated as No. 1 on the Ringelmann chart, as published by the United States bureau of mines; or

(ii) Of such opacity as to obscure an observer's view to a degree equal to or greater than does smoke described in subsection (a)(i) above.

(b) No motor vehicle first sold and registered prior to January 1, 1971, shall discharge into the atmosphere at elevations of less than three thousand feet any air contaminant for a period of more than ten seconds which is:

(i) As dark as or darker than the shade designated as No. 2 on the Ringelmann chart, as published by the United States bureau of mines; or

(ii) Of such opacity as to obscure an observer's view to a degree equal to or greater than does smoke described in subsection (b)(i) above.

(c) For the purposes of this subsection the following definitions shall apply:

(i) "Opacity" means the degree to which an emission reduces the transmission of light and obscures the view of an object in the background;

(ii) "Ringelmann chart" means the Ringelmann smoke chart with instructions for use as published by the United States bureau of mines in May 1967 and as thereafter amended, information circular 7718.

(3) No person shall modify the exhaust system of a motor vehicle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the engine of such vehicle above that emitted by the muffler originally installed on the vehicle, and it shall be unlawful for any person to operate a motor vehicle not equipped as required by this subsection, or which has been amplified as prohibited by this subsection. A court may dismiss an infraction notice for a violation of this subsection if there is reasonable grounds to believe that the vehicle was not operated in violation of this subsection.

This subsection (3) does not apply to vehicles twenty-five or more years old or to passenger vehicles being operated off the highways in an organized racing or competitive event conducted by a recognized sanctioning body.



[2006 c 306 4; 2001 c 293 1; 1977 ex.s. c 355 33; 1972 ex.s. c 135 1; 1967 c 232 3; 1961 c 12 46.37.390. Prior: 1955 c 269 39; prior: 1937 c 189 36; RRS 6360-36; RCW 46.36.050; 1927 c 309 17; 1921 c 96 21; 1915 c 142 20; RRS 6362-17.]


Notes:



Rules of court: Monetary penalty schedule -- IRLJ 6.2.

Severability -- 1977 ex.s. c 355: See note following RCW 46.37.010.


Motorcycles and motor-driven cycles -- Additional requirements and limitations: RCW 46.37.539.
