LT's and muffler deletes too loud?

anyone have this setup? if so in your opinion is it loud enough under load (accelerating) to get in trouble with police?

I don't have it but I've heard it. It's loud. Be prepared. And yes, you'll probably draw some unwanted attention with much throttle at all. Plan to piss off your neighbors as well.....which may or may not be what you're looking to do.

I have it. It's very loud, and not neighbor friendly. I'm keeping it though since my nearest neighbor is half a mile away.

I have it full SLP LTs, X pipe, and Loudmouth 1 axel back. It is definately louder but not so much as to get you ticketed and I am sure my neighbors hear it but oh well. This is not my car but I have the exact same exhaust setup and IT IS NICE

In my area, the first time a cop heard your car at half throttle or more you would have a ticket.

So are you thinking of pulling the catbacks off that you have in your sig? Just curious.

On your point - I don't have that setup. I'm close though as I have the LTs, HF cats plus a cam. I kept the stock mufflers and it is plenty loud! When I am in the throttle any amount at all it blasts volume. I can't imagine it without the mufflers! I can't creep much slower to get out of my neigborhood than I am now so I'm keeping the mufflers. If the cops in your area are fussy about noise - then I think this is a recipe for a ticket.

I've been in a few cars with it, personally it is very loud, but I don't like the tone of the car. They sound a lot deeper with a good pair of 3" mufflers on the car.

Look into some flowmaster outlaws...they take away most of the rasp you'll get with no mufflers.

if i knew how to properly post a video i would...sorry

if you are driving around town and keep it under 3k RPM it just has a nice growl to it, plus you end up saving a little bit of gas

it's not neighbor friendly on cold starts and can draw attention from police of you don't spot em out and keep it quiet. But I got pulled over 3 times with it and never questioned about my exhaust. Each time I got pulled over was my fault for doing something stupid. After a few months you get used to it and doesn't even feel so loud anymore, honestly.

That video of the loudmouth exhaust and headers made me fall in love with that exhaust. But I'm getting a cam and thought it might be too loud.

Sounds amazing, I am surprised at the numerous compliments I get. Here's a clip from my phone, not the best audio but you can get a good feel for it. The magnaflows are very deep and quiet inside the car. Cutouts open..the LT's sing!
