I'd say nearly every exhaust is louder than what's allowed under California's rules and the RPi system is no exception. The question is more of what you can get away with.

If you're worried, get the Eisenmann Sport, or the Remus Sport, or the Megan Racing, or the OEM Performance exhaust, or anything that keeps it generally as close to stock as possible.

I love the Drone. Its got a very deep and pressured sound/feeling. Standing outside of the car on a cold start is just awesome. I get compliments weekly on the sound of my car.
