That would be pretty loud, but it might give you a pretty good boost...depending on the type of muffler that you have now.

As long as it stays below the decible law for wherever you live, you should be able to do whatever you want. Hell, the SRT-4 doesn't have any mufflers.

well, it would fail any emmisions laws... no cat converter = tons of bad gasses... so yes, it would be illigal, quiet or loud, its illigal, oh, but also that... it would be loud

Why would it be illegal? You think they cared about emmisions in 54?

54 is a year? If so, it sure as hell doesn't need to have cats.

I'm just assuming 54 is a year, can't think of a vehicle that has "54" as part of its model name. So best guess is it's a year. But exactly, why would they care about pollution in 54, they had no idea what pollution does back in the day.
