exhaust laws?

do any of you fellow Oregonians know what the rules are here in oregon. as far as i know, as long as it ends after the cab, then it is ok. i plan on running a single stack in the passenger corner of the bed. i live up here in clatsop county and i don't think there are any emmisions testing or anything. i already have a 4" straight pipe now, so its already loud so i'm not really worried about noise tickets. any help would be great.

thanks,
travis

dunno but bought our truck from a Ford dealer in Salem, (no name mentioned) it already had some kind of 4" turbo back exhaust - a small probably 6" bulge in the pipe that looks like a muffler. Either the dealer didn't check out his used truck or they don't care.

Removing your cat is illegal in every state. thats a federal law. and as far as i know anything modified from stock is also illegal but cops dont usually push that unless there looking for probable cause. but that might not be true up in oregon. good luck

This is what I have found so far....

(Exhaust System)



815.250 Operation without proper exhaust system; exemptions; penalty.

(2) An exhaust system only meets the requirements of this section if all of the following apply:

(a) The exhaust system must be in good working order.

(b) The exhaust system must be in constant operation.

(c) The exhaust system must meet noise emission standards determined by the Department of Environmental Quality to be substantially equivalent to the following standards based upon a stationary test conducted at a distance of 25 feet in accordance with procedures established by the Department of Environmental Quality:
