Default Mufflex inspection legal?

I want to modify my exhaust and have checked out all the Mufflex youtube clips on gen 4 Rams like mine. I have the 2012 Ram 5.7 Hemi QC 4x4 Express and absolutely love the truck. The blatt of the DOD14 really appeals to me but I wonder if it will pass inspection. (I live in Maine and we are an vehicle inspection state) I think the DOD18 will slide by with the right inspection station but not sure the DOD14 will fly. Anyone from an inspection state that has them inspected at the dealership and it passes? Thanks for the anticipated replies.

Curious why you think it wont pass? You'll be running both a converter and muffler so you should be fine. If you were running no muffler then it might not pass.

I have a flowmaster 40 series muffler on mine and it's definitely 3" inlet and 2.5" outlet which they modified down to fit the stock y pipe and I have nothing but good things to say about the work, sound, and performance.

How loud is that in the cab of the truck @ 70mph on the interstate? I don't want to drown out the radio or have problems hearing while talking on the phone.

Sounds great though!

If you reallllly listen for it, you can hear it on the interstate, but it's honestly hardly noticeable, which is exactly what I was going for. It's got a nice deep rumble on start up and revving at low speeds, and combined with the CAI it sounds great when you floor it, but for the most part it's really just a deeper version of stock and hardly noticeable at a decent cruise. You will have ZERO problems with it drowning out any possible noise in the cab.

Hope that helps.

Great! That is what I wanted to hear. I think this is what I will be getting for mine next week then.

They will actually get out a meter if they think it is too high a decibal level. This is Maine.
