Need a quiet exhaust.

Hi all, right now i have Magnaflow comp series axle back connected to LT ARH's with no cats....and i was just recently pulled over and was given 15 days to make it sound stock, most cops in my town know nothing about cars so I'm hoping an axle back with mufflers would be enough to pass inspection. Ill be pulling them off again right after inspection so i don't need anything too expensive. Just something that would quiet it down quite a bit.

What would be the best choice?

Borrow a stock cat-back from someone in your area if possible.

Yeah, where are your stock mufflers? Quieter and won't lose any power if you don't get around to putting the other exhaust back on soon

The place i took the car to get the exhaust installed either trashed them or sold them. I didn't think i would end up needing it down the road. Also, at the time, i didn't want them. Had nothing to haul them with and i wasn't about to stuff them in the Camaro.

Hopefully, whatever route it go with, that it will pass inspection.

I live in a medium size town smack dab in the middle of Wisconsin. Apparently the law is anything louder then stock is illegal. Which is ridiculous because Harley's NEVER get pulled over and neither do rice rockets with fart cans.
I ordered the headers without cats so I won't be able to install them, they have no idea that I don't have any cats so it should be fine. I just hope I can muffle the sound for inspection without spending too much money...I was going to be saving up for a cam :( lol.

Magnaflow Street 2.5 catback exhaust. That will solve your issues. You should also get the cat section for your headers. That will also quiet your setup.


You could also get the resonated X pipe that comes with the Magaflow street catback and add it to your current setup. That will quiet it down quite a bit.



Best options

1. Run cats +
2. Add resonated X pipe or get the full Magnaflow 2.5 street catback

Don't you live in Wausau? That's only 30 miles north of me! I will remind myself to stay out of Wausau with my Camaro

Word, another reason why I want to move out of dodge! I saw a car last nite with plastic wrap for their back window. The chances of them getting stopped 0-3% They love newer cars

Should be a good setup, but full exhaust is out of my price range. Ill be taking what i get right back off again after inspection.

Yeah normally the Wausau police are cool about it, looks like i just ran into the wrong one. I had this setup for quite awhile now and cops didn't seem to mind until this guy.

I hate living in Wisconsin! I love my parents and my one grandma I have left and my older brother. If I wasn't soo close to them and enjoy their presence I would be outta of here in a heartbeat. I'm 27 but I have been stopped 6 times only got one ticket out of those times but the sad part is they never pulled me over for speeding or a legit reason.

Several guys have added the Magnaflow resonated X pipe to their setup to quiet it down and to get rid of drone.
That might be enough to keep the noise police happy.

I was pulled over for taking the far lane while turning. That was when I had my Cadillac, every time id get pulled over, I was drug searched...Silly stuff. All my family lives here too, so if I do leave it won't be until after military or college. I'm only 18 at the moment.

I think I'm just going to put some mufflers on and tell them it's pretty damn close to stock and hopefully they believe me. It just sucks that I put so much money into the car to make it the way I like it, then have to spend more money to make myself un-happy and the police happy.

Headers do make any exhaust louder.

But I have the Magnaflow Street catback with Kooks headers with high flow cats and its not very loud. Its fairly aggressive and sounds great above 3000 rpms, but below 3000 rpms its pretty quiet.

I'm actually taking off my cats and putting a race pipe to make my setup a little louder.

Adding high flow cats and a resonated X pipe/muffler will make a pretty big difference in the noise level.

Corsa Catback w/ resonated X-pipe is another option. I just installed it for the second time and still can't believe how much is sounds like stock.

However I'd hate for you to spend a bunch of money and have it still not pass... good luck

The main problem is living in Wisconsin you don't see many modified new cars. If you do everybody assumes your rich or doing drugs. Me I have the car payments and cc debt to prove it:( Good luck with your exhaust. I have the catback exhaust on my 2LT. It's nice and loud to me

Corsa + long tube headers is not quiet. It's pretty darn loud when you mash the go petal.
Is the Corsa + resonated X pipe a new exhaust by Corsa (made for L99s)?

If it is I'm not familar with that exhaust. I know the regular Corsa is pretty loud with headers.
