In my town, we have loggers, who come ripping down the streets at double the speed limit, from about 3 am to 5 am. They almost all drive big, club-cab diesel pickups. The first thing they do, is pull the cores out of the mufflers, so they sound like freight-trains roaring down the street. Since they're part of the timber industry, the police don't interfere with them. No amount of regulations or pollution standards would make any difference, when that kind of double-standard exists.

The big timber-processing plants fouled the air and water for many years, before state and federal crackdowns made them clean up their emissions. The air was so toxic, that a landmark lawsuit was won by a homeowner five miles from a paper plant, because the fumes peeled the paint from his house. This is the way corporations behave, if they are not forced, kicking and screaming, to change their ways, by governmental regulations, that are strictly enforced.

But I bet the tests are SAE J1169

Not the ones I have owned. In fact, one of the biggest complaints is how quiet they are. My CL65 AMG was almost silent, even when you gave it the beans.

My Panoz, when I step on it, is loud, right from the factory....free flowing exhaust.

(Not me and not mine but same model and color combo)

This is how it always works, though.

You find something fun to do, like modifying your vehicle. Then a small subset of loathsome, immature individuals decide their idea of fun is to make noise for the sake of making noise. And now we have to step in with the full range of laws and regulations because said individuals never encountered a firm kindergarten teacher who could teach them values like "consideration for others".

Playing the bagpipes is fun. Playing the bagpipes in front of somebody's house at 3 AM is obnoxious and if that somehow gained popularity, then yes - we'd have to roll our eyes, sigh, and start making rules for acceptable venues for bagpipe playing, all the while longing for the days when bagpipe players had the courtesy to to pick a suitable time and place on their own.

It is a federal crime to modify anything between the air filter and the cat. Mufflers can be changed without any issues if it's under 95 dBA.
No it isnít.

My grandfather said that the reason bagpipers always march when playing, is that makes them harder to hit with a brick.
