Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

I hate cars that make un-necessary noise just for the hell of it. Did it occure to you that your choice to make noise infringes on other people's right to enjoy the peace and quiet? What are you whining about anyway? Look at the tickets as a noise enjoyment tax.

If you drive around like an arsehole the cops soon pull you over for anything. Taillight out, didn't come to a full stop, slightly over the limit, didn't signal. They could cut you some slack but they won't... why? Because you're well known around town for being a dick. Done this myself back in the day and took me a long time to figure it out and drive slower and quieter.

Put a real muffler on it. You won't be able to tell the difference when driving except that your wallet gets thicker.

This may satisfy that cop, but down the road is another who may have another opinion of what's quiet. If you drive with the peddle to the floor, as I suspect, I would go with something quieter as a safety measure. Again, if you rip around town tearing up the streets, you may never get a muffler that will satisfy them.

If you move the muffler to where it should be and run a tailpipe it will be alot quieter...

yea cause right now the muffler is at the very end of the strait pipe, yea moving it back should help quiet it down or maybe a glasspack in the middle? or would that make it louder?

I have L20b with headers, 2.5" exhaust back to an old magnaflow. I've never gotten pulled over for it, but then again the muffler is placed before the diff.

I like the new classifieds better.

Why not add a inline silencer of some sort? Just think of all the $$$ you could be spending on your car instead of giving it to the gubmint.

Glasspack or resonator placed as close to the exhaust manifold as possible, followed by a muffler ahead of the diff. Really pretty cheap, and should quiet things down decently.

Also you live in Berkeley... I was of the opinion they're pretty aggressive on the noise ordinances there anyway.
