Hi there,

You will need to know if this ticket is for a noisy exhaust or noisy induction, dose it say?

There is not much you can do I am afraid, if they say it to loud, you may have to replace the muffler, did they do a check with a Dba meter?Or just by ear?

Kit was just by ear so a muffler shop can do actual test on it and will that count that it is good if it passes

If you can get a legal Dba reading on it and it is with in spec, you won't have a problem, I just think that maybe you got nabbed by some one having a bad day thats all.
