347.39(1)
(1) No person shall operate on a highway any motor vehicle subject to registration unless such motor vehicle is equipped with an adequate muffler in constant operation and properly maintained to prevent any excessive or unusual noise or annoying smoke. This subsection also applies to motor bicycles.


347.39(2)
(2) No muffler or exhaust system on any vehicle mentioned in sub. (1) shall be equipped with a cutout, bypass or similar device nor shall there be installed in the exhaust system of any such vehicle any device to ignite exhaust gases so as to produce flame within or without the exhaust system. No person shall modify the exhaust system of any such motor vehicle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the motor of such vehicle above that emitted by the muffler originally installed on the vehicle, and such original muffler shall comply with all the requirements of this section.


347.39(3)
(3) In this section, "muffler" means a device consisting of a series of chambers of baffle plates or other mechanical design for receiving exhaust gases from an internal combustion engine and which is effective in reducing noise.
Technically this law applies to motorcycles too.

Lol! How then can Flowmaster market their mufflers as 50 state legal? I guess theres a law for everything. I better take off my tips too cause they are made to be like a Megaphone and they do help make a better/louder sound. Lol! I guess this is the reason I try to keep it quiet around every cop I see.

Karen had a cop follow her one day (she was in the Maxx). When they came to a stoplight, the cop pulled over to the left lane, motioned her to put her window down. He then proceeded to tell her "That exhaust sounds damn good for such a small car!" This was coming from a Sheriff mind you.


At least we have a few decent cops around here.
