    newer pipes might do the trick. get an eBay cat-back with your HKS welded on the end might make it sound a bit better & louder.

    So the HKS muffles is welded onto the stock pipes? If so, go to a muffler shop, let them know you want larger piping from the catback but you want to keep the current muffler. Shouldn't be too much and it should be louder.

    Basically do a full exhaust.. headers, 2.5 inch piping all the way back, resonators welded in-line with the piping. you could get one or 2 its up to you but get one up front near the cat and one toward the muffler if you deside to go dual resonators

    Personal opinion is go get a magnaflow cat back, ditch the muffler and get a carb legal good sounding exhaust. No need to draw all sorts of attention to yourself and have problems passing smog with headers.

    On second thought, you live in riverside! Definitly go this route.... unless you like spending time with the police in the area.

    Does anyone know where to get some muffler bearings for the 3000GT? I need to replace mine. They're seized.

    Make sure to check the levels of your exhaust fluid, it may not be the bearings... and saves you a trip to the zone.

    Also, a quick fix; go to a muffler shop and replace your stock resonator with a straight pipe. It'll make your current system a bit more free-flowing and tad louder.

    Anything after the cat is carb legal. Noise is a different story. That's at the officers discretion.

    about 80 to 100 bucks, depends on the shop... mine charged 250 to bend all of the piping and weld it in place but thats a full cat back

    There's actually a set decibel level in most cities. Police just write a ticket if they think it's over the limit. If you do get a noise ticket, you can take it to a testing station and if your decibel level is within the limit, your ticket can be dismissed. Otherwise, prepare to pay the fine.

    A new resonator and larger piping will produce more noise.
