not sure about the legal part but they do sell mufflers that go into the stacks and is held by a small screw on the back of the stack that needs to be drilled...

I believe Logan did get a ticket for his stacks being too loud in the Winston-Salem area. I never heard the outcome of it but as I remember it was an inspection type ticket.

You can always do a muffler before the stacks or do insert mufflers if you want to tame them down.

Well, since I have done a whole lot of research on the subject seeing as how I got busted for it one time. Per NC state statues, any modification to the exhaust system is illegal. Now, it does not say if that only applies to gas or both gas and diesel. No, more than likely you will not get a ticket for it. I was in an area where there is a ton of cruising and the cops are just looking for anything. I was coming up a hill in the certain RPM range that is the loudest. I am sure he thought I was speeding because of this even though I was not. Since he did not have his radar on, he felt it necessary to stop me. Since he could not get me for anything else, he decided that my exhaust was not legal. I would not worry about it for inspections though since there are no emissions on diesels in NC. I would say your good as far as that goes. I would be careful in area that the cops are just looking for someone to pull over though. I say get them and be happy with them.

Dare County, eh? mmmm... Howard's Pub on Ocracoke.... Oh and Alpheius Drinkwater (ferry, lol, I'm sure you know alllll about her)


I have cops riding my right corner quite often, looking over at the pipe, and it makes me nervous at times, but have never been pulled. Raleigh PD is very very very stringent about noise violations though.

And another thing about raleigh.... Stay away from Henry's muffler in raleigh though... They'll straight pipe it, but will not put anything bigger than a 3" pipe in place of the stock pipe (even if it means making it fit under bigger pipe) They say 3" is all a diesel needs, etc....
