And it finally happened....

27151(A)CVC Modified exhaust
5200(A)CVC No front license plate

So I was invited to attend a monthly car gathering and I summoned up another two buddies, a QP GTS and GTS. We met in a shopping center parking lot and boys being boys (with modified exhausts) just couldn't resist the urge to rev up the engines. We lined up to leave and just as we pulled out of the plaza.... 5-0 rolls up and pulls me over.

On a positive note: you probably made the cop's day better

Hey Dex,

Good to hear from you. Sorry it was about a bad experience. I hold my breath every time I take my QP out as they could certainly get me for the same two violations. What part of town were you guys in?

Hey Ed!

It's great to hear from you again!

We were in Rowland Heights when it happened. The police seem to have different attitudes depending on where you are... Up until now, I've mostly received gestures of approval from the 5-0.

Anyways, do you still have the same number? Would be great if you can join us for a run in the near future. I'd love to hear the sound of your larini boxes on the QP again!

I also got to say thank you to you and Patrick for introducing me to this community. That first drive we took really lit my passion for the brand and its been a great time making friends with like minded enthusiasts!

Dex,

Yes, same number. PM me if you need it. Please let me know via call or PM text here to let me know when you want to get out for a drive. I would really enjoy a group cruise.
Thanks, Ed

Dex...Sorry to hear that, if you don't mind me asking, just curious, was the violation over the speed limit or for aggressive driving. After my exhaust mod, I find myself staying in the lower gear a little longer than I used to.

Hey Atlantan,

I was not over the speed limit nor necessarily driving very aggressively per se. However I was in low gears going into high revs...

This cop just had a hard on for me. He literally had nothing better to do.

Anyways, I am considering going back to stock. I kind of miss that original sound that I had. I've also got this rattling/raspy kind of sound coming from the mufflers when I use the throttle a certain way.

I believe the springs on the valved mufflers has come loose.
