    Default Oversized exhaust Tip laws (Alberta)

    So I just got in trouble for oversized exhaust tips on my car. The law is somethine like "If your exhaust tip size is larger than what it was when it was stock, it is illegal."

    Any ways around this or for fighting this?

    I think there's a maximum size like 3 inches or something. Has nothing to do with your stock size.

    I was told I had a warning, and that I had 1 week to change it or the next time he see's me he will tow my car and consider it non-road worthy.

    He also said I was "marked" which means when ever a cop runs your plate a message about my exhaust comes up and it's an automatic reason to be pulled over.

    BTW I have my silencers in so it's not loud at all.

    i got one sometime last year.... not much you can do about it. the cop showed me his handbook too. it has in printing if your exhaust is modified in any way its illegal

    a better solution would be to get something more stock looking. then you don't have to worry about it.

    Sorry About the mess but here is a copy of the HWY traffic act regarding mufflers #3 is the one there catching you on.

    Tecnically if you have a 3/4/5" exhaust from the manifold back it would not be ilegal, also if you have one of those exust tips that look like there 3-4" but have a stock sized outlet inside thats also not ilegal

    but if you have a tip with a resonator on it that would be out because of #4

    so whatever goes in to the muffler has to come out of it.

    Hope this helps

    Mufflers 56

    (1) A motor vehicle propelled by an internal combustion engine
    must have an exhaust muffler that cools and expels the exhaust gases
    from the engine without excessive noise and without producing
    flames or sparks.

    (2) A person shall not drive or operate a motor vehicle propelled by
    an internal combustion engine that has no muffler or if part of the
    muffler is missing.

    (3) A person shall not drive or operate a motor vehicle propelled by
    an internal combustion engine if the exhaust outlet of the muffler has
    been opened or widened.

    (4) A person shall not drive or operate a motor vehicle propelled by
    an internal combustion engine if a device is attached to the exhaust
    system or the muffler that increases the noise made by the expulsion
    of gases from the engine or allows a flame to be ignited from the
    exhaust system.

    (5) This section applies to a power bicycle that is propelled by an
    internal combustion engine.

    Nice!

    This is what I have; 3" downpipe with a 3" pipe that goes to a muffler then splits into to 2.5" side by side then ending with two polished 14" long tips 3" wide each. It's Called Greddy DD exhaust and was imported from Japan for use on silvias, direct bolt in. Oh ya I have 2 silencers same 14" long each, reduces the inside to 1.5" and noise levels by 40%.

    What do you think? Also where does it say about the 3" stuff is ok?

    I got an exhaust ticket last year, plus a ticket for not having an amber reflector in the front.
