muffler laws

as usual, rules in this area are very unclear...i am trying to find out what the laws are in Virginia about after market mufflers. mainly regarding how loud they can be before they are illegal. any information would be a great help. also, has anyone ever had any problems with the police because of a muffler being too loud (in any state)?

i know laws are laws, but i think, with a flowmaster 40 you will be ok. i maybe could see a problem if you had it straight piped and loud as hell, but with just a muffler, im pretty sure you'd be ok. good idea to check first though.

The first mod I want to do is either a flowmaster or Toyota's high performance exhaust.
Haven't priced either one, but Tacomaman06 how does your Flowmasters sound and did you notice any performance improvement over stock?

i just bought the flowmaster original 40, so i haven't put it on yet. i would advise not going for the toyota one because i have heard that it is not technically a performance muffler...it is a "sport muffler" meaning that it does not improve performance, but only increases the sound. as for the flowmaster, i just bought mine for $54. go onto ebay, and oyu can get them new, from "ebay stores". they are a lot cheaper there...if you buy from a muffler shop of other online store you can spend from $80-$120.

as for the sound, go into tacomaman06's profile (the guy who posted right before you), he has a fantastic sound-clip of a flowmaster 40 on his v6.

hey cburt, i love my flowmaster. save your self some $ and just get a shop to weld in whatever muffler you want(flowmaster) and add a shiny tip to it. should cost you around $130......way cheaper than toyota's trd exhaust. bout the only difference is the trd exhasut is stainless, but i think my flowmaster sounds better, just my opinion though. as far as performance, i can tell it does breathe better, but i "get into the throttle" more now because of the sound, i dont really pay attention to mileage. here is a soundclip of my 40series.....................
