Police/Straight Pipe Problem!!!

I have stacks on my truck with straight piped and i have a cop at my school hasling me about not having a muffler on my truck everyday when i leave school and threating to give me a ticket....so i need to know what kind of really small muffler i could put on my truck that wont mess up the sound.. and i need a small one because there is not much room for a exaust between the stacks and the turbo. I was wonderin if yall had any suggestions.

i got a strait pipe not a stack though, i don't think anyone would ever question it, it's pretty quiet. sounds like he's givin u a chance, he would have already givin u a ticket if he was a d**k.

I have heard that in some states, if your vehicle has a turbo it is considered a muffler... i just recently got a ticket in virginia for not having a muffler and my truck is ten times quieter then those damned rice rockets with their coffee can mufflers. oh and i got a lift ticket!

what you need to do is tell the principal at school that he is harassing you and you will stop going to school if it keeps up. the school will make the cop stop harassing you because of the already near 25% national drop out rate.

You are ALL correct, the turbo IS a muffling device because it is an actual peice of equipement that muffles the sound of the motor, and it is in place AFTER the motor, hence the exhaust. Tell him that
