Im curious to see if a hood stack is legal in PA. I was thinking about flush mounting it in the hood with a flapper on it.

Hood stack isn't legal in any state for on-highway use vehicles per DOT.

When I had triple turbos on, the exhasut was basically a 'hood stack', though I didn't have the hood on.
I live next door to the sheriff's station and drove the truck for 2 weeks, passed way more cops than you will and nobody said nuthin.
I even broke down along side the road once and cops drove right by...

It might not be legal, but I bet not many will snag you on it, unless you're pumping freight train plumes of smoke...

An OBS or 2, or 3...
