Was gonna it tested today, but it's raining so they can't test under those conditions.
I'm going to revert back to stock for the test. Was testing with an iPhone app according to the ADR specs - idle was at 80dbs and at 4000 rpms, it was sitting around 92db. Given the inaccuracy of iPhone apps, an actual test would pull higher.

Re: Exotics and even AMG - apparently if it comes out of the factory loud, then EPA can't fine you for it. Was told this by one of the licensed testers - AMGs come out loud, and their limit is 105 for EPA purposes.....

Double standards much?
