Default NEw exhaust.. Cop busted me :(

So i used to have my exhaust turned out the side behind the last cat lookin like this..


And then i got stopped by a state trooper and given two weeks to make my exhaust quieter and get a working muffler on my truck.. I got it all done and this time insted of having the exhaust sticking out the side i have it hidden under the bed of the truck since that was another reason he pulled me over.. the finished product:




I know some of you won't like it but its what i could afford and got it quick. its a cherrybomb turbo muffler

so wait you had your truck straight piped after the cat and coming out in front of the rear tire and you got pulled over for one beacuse it was to loud second because of where the exhaust came out?!?!?! wow you didnt need a muffler you could have run the pipe a bit futher back and been fine it would have made it quiter and all i have to say is what an a$$ just cause of where the exhaust exits wow is all i have to say when i had my 1997 4.2 f150 and i had straight pipes and not one cop pulled me over for being to loud

So.......did they use a decimeter on the truck from 50' away? I just question why it's considered "too loud"....what'd you have before muffler wise? I suppose I just don't see why it's an issue when a small block chevy with a bolt on exhaust is ALOT louder than a v6 ranger only wishes to be.

Ok i had it straight piped and turned out after the side.. i really didn't think it was that loud.. this local state trooper literally like looks for me No he didn't do the decimeter thing 50 feet behind the pipe and i was running no muffler before. so he said i needed a working muffler on there... and he said my pipe was unprotected hanging out the side like that.

Ya FML... tell me about it... its not that big of deal tho. putting that turbo muffler on actually increased my gas milage from my previous setup. I think the lil increas in backpressure helped.

you could have challenged him and went to court and then he wouldnt be able to pull you over for that again cause you can say he didnt use a sound meter to see if it was to loud
