    Question Passing VA State inspection w/ Loudmouth?

    I just bought this car about 4 weeks ago it's a '99 Z28 A4. It still had the stock exhaust on it so we welded up a Hooker Aerochamber at work it improved the sound a little but it's still not loud enought lol. I had a Z28 a few years back also a '99 (dunno why guess I just like that year lmao) i the Borla exhaust on it and loved it Good Gawd it sounded good! Anyway I really don't have the money to be buying the Borla now so I'm really leaning towards the SLP LM. My only concern is getting the car inspected after I install it. I live in Virginia and most of the inspectors around here are pretty strict. Is it a passable exhaust or will they look under the car and say hell no! LOL

    Thanks
    Chris

    if they are looking for noise, you will fail.
    as for a sniffer test, it wont be any different than the stock system because you still have cats.

    lol yeah well it's got a 01/07 inspection on it now so I guess I'm good for about 11 months....guess I could just install it and worry about getting it inspected when the time comes lol

    Have you actually heard the loudmouth exhaust? It's gonna be quite a bit louder than the Borla you like so much, and sound less refined.

    Yeah i've heard it. My orginal plan was just to buy the Borla but when i bought it for the other car it was $630 at Summit and now it's $200 more! LM is still around $400 shipped i can deal w/ less refined SLP for that much of a price difference.

    Isn't the LM II supposed to be louder? I'm not sure but I'll be ordering mine tomorrow and need to decide!
