Are you talking about noise or pollution?

Damn my SB is a week after next. I guess mine is late? Id rather have it later anyway so it will be warmer. I need to drop the engine in my white 165 and replace the head gasket and a bunch of other shit while Im at it.

Nice to hear you almost got it running to the point where you can drive it long distance. Cosmin said he got to drive it with open down pipe. I bet your neighbors loved that haha.

ok, so my cars sitting in the garage. i need a few things. does anyone have a single entry turbo lying around? thats in good enough condition to use, while i wait to get min rebuilt? that would be awesome.

but now that i have a job, i am ordering some extra stuff for my car. first is a cusco type II front brace and TRD sway bar bushings.

Probably a little late for your purposes, but technically anything louder than stock is illegal in Illinois. Which really ticks me off for the 99 out of 100 Harley's that don't have stock exhausts, make three times as much noise as any four banger, but never get stopped for it. So yeah, if your exhaust isn't stock and they think it's loud, they can give you a ticket.

well before i was running an open downpipe and had no trouble with local authorities. but i dont my trac much, for various reasons. so yeah. but now the exhaust is much quieter at idle, and very nice at revs.
