The first post is a b*tch to read, but along with the replies they're saying that it's illegal to have muffler tips that are not stock or cannot be bought in dealerships? Is this true? I've seen billions of people with modified exhausts so this comes as a huge surprise to me. I've also wanted to buy a muffler tip to weld or bolt onto my own but after reading this I'm not too sure
7.03 (1) A motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine shall be equipped with an exhaust muffler consisting of a series of pipes or chambers which ensures that the exhaust gases from the engine are cooled and expelled without excessive noise.
(2) No person shall drive or operate a motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine when the muffler with which the vehicle is equipped is cut out or disconnected from the engine.
Part removal prohibited
(3) No person shall drive or operate a motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine equipped with a muffler from which has been removed any baffle plate or other part.
(4) No person shall drive or operate a motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine equipped with a muffler the exhaust outlet of which has been opened or widened
I don't know if you would get pulled over but if you did it would be easy to see a larger pipe placed over a smaller one wouldn't it? My thought would be that a grapefruit shooter slid over a stock diamater tailpipe would be heard before it was seen and then anyone could see that it was greatly larger.
Thanks . So pretty much , it's illegal to install a modified exhaust system or even have a aftermarket muffler tip from canadian tire (<- just an example)? Or am I misunderstanding
I have a fully modified exhaust with dual 2.25" tips. The 2 tips flow almost as much as a 3" tip without looking like a fart can and attracting negative attention from the police. I've never had a problem.
I haven't heard or seen anyone get pulled over for an exhaust related issue either.. unless it's a huge as* fart can . But the thread I found was pretty surprising, I believe it was in the gva too
I actually drive a Hybrid, and I want an exhaust that's.. kind of chrome to give it a bit of shine instead of the dull material it is now. I haven't found any tips that have the same in and out sizes, so I'd expect to increase from approx 2.3" to 2.6". I don't want a huge ass muffler tip to look fast, or to add a dual exhaust tip on my single one. IMO dual exhausts on usdm civics is as rice as sticking a huge gt wing and a 4" fart can on a 1990 civic.
