Who here has a 318is or the m42 engine with an exhaust and cold air intake in their car? And what does your car idle at? Also is your car noisy/loud at low rpms and idle or no? I got a fixit ticket for "exhaust too loud" my car idles at 1000 and i was going up hill in third gear at about 2500 rpms(this hill is pretty steep also) everything on my car is CARB legal and im pissed that even when the cop saw my CARB numbers he still gave me a ticket when my papers say that my car is no louder than 95db, its actually at 92db and 94db in first when i got my car dynoed i checked it.
