Track gurus Help- LimeRock park - exhaust volume..

So I'll be doing the April 6th track day and cars will need to be muffled to 86dB at all Lime Rock Park events. My current exhaust mods are ACM test pipes with Meistershaft GT2 exhaust. It's pretty loud on open throttle.
I'm thinking putting my OEM muffler on for that day while leaving the test pipes. Will this suffice? Or muffler packing material?
I did one event last summer there and they didn't say anything until I was leaving and they were pretty mad. Really don't want to have bad relations with them because I love the track and this season looking to do plenty more track events.
Much help and thoughts appreciated. Thanks!

86db doesn't give you much room over a stock car? Oem muffler swap is all I would do anymore and even that isn't worth it.

You ain't lying. I have bW race on my e46 and it's pretty damn loud. If we had noise restriction I would be screwed.

Very strict here on the upper east coast. Always seen Porsches running those extended mufflers from there exhausts. They do not play around at limerock. But yes, only thing I can do is slap the oem muffler on...we'll see.

You'll probably fail due to intake noise.

Residents shouldn't have bought next to a race track and then whined. My GT3 is probably 104dB.
