Has anyone received a ticket for a loud exhaust? Another car forum made me think about this and was wondering if anyone has had any issues... At 110 db, figured it could lead to issues with LEO.

Not yet. But I did have a motorcycle sheriff checking out my car in the parking lot about a month ago. I went outside and said "I know it looks fast, but please don't give me a ticket". He got a good laugh out of it. I would think that as long as you're not being a jackass high revving all over town, you would probably be OK. I always drive in loud mode, and haven't had any issues yet.

Every deputy that has seen it wants to check it out. I was at a meeting with the sheriff and other county fire chiefs and the sheriff wanted to go outside and see it.

Or as someone else on the forum called it, the "I hate my neighbors mode". Perfect description. ;-)
Which is why I leave it in normal mode between 8PM and 8AM when I'm in residential areas. I might stretch that a *little* on Friday and Saturday nights, but people do have babies and little kids to put to bed, so ...

Fortunately I live in a fairly rural area and find I'm the least offensive person noisewise even though I switch to sport mode immediately, so I guess other people hate their neighbors too. ;-)

You guys act like you're driving a dang NASCAR or something. If you're not whaling on it, even Sport mode is not that bad. My car spends zero time in normal mode and I've never had a cop problem. Like anything else in life, be smart about it.

Just left the house after lunch. Had it in sport mode. The lady across the street had just gotten out of her car. As I drove past her, I revved it and she clutched her chest. It was pretty funny. She just looked at me and laughed.

I am retired law enforcement if they give you a ticket for a stock exhaust. You can beat it by having your local Ford dealership verify in writing that it's stock and of course take a photo to show your exhaust system.
I live in Mooresville north Carolina I moved here for the car scene. I been here for 6 years and never had a issue with the police with my loud exhaust on any of my mustangs. I like drive in the lower gears lol the cops are muscle car guys even the sheriff and state are super cool. The ricers is a different story lol
