Taken from the link, after I clicked on Virginia, and did a search for noise...
46.2-1049. Exhaust system in good working order.
No person shall drive and no owner of a motor vehicle shall permit or allow the operation of any vehicle on a highway unless it is equipped with an exhaust system of a type installed as standard factory equipment, or comparable to that designed for use on the particular vehicle as standard factory equipment, in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual noise. An exhaust system shall not be deemed to prevent excessive or unusual noise if it permits the escape of noise in excess of that permitted by the standard factory equipment exhaust system of private passenger motor vehicles or trucks of standard make.
The term "exhaust system," as used in this section, means all the parts of a motor vehicle through which the exhaust passes after leaving the engine block.
Chambered pipes are not an effective muffling device to prevent excessive or unusual noise.

It shall be unlawful to sell or offer for sale any (i) muffler without interior baffle plates or other effective muffling device or (ii) gutted muffler, muffler cutout, or straight exhaust. It shall be unlawful for any person to operate on the highways in the Commonwealth a motor vehicle equipped with a gutted muffler, muffler cutout, or straight exhaust.
(Code 1950, 46-306; 1950, p. 54; 1958, c. 541, 46.1-302; 1964, c. 628; 1989, c. 727.)
Sec. 18-2. Creating loud, disturbing, etc., noise prohibited; violations and penalties.
(a) It shall be unlawful to create or assist in creating any unreasonably loud and disturbing noise in the City, and noise of such character, intensity and duration as to be detrimental to the life or health of any person or to unreasonably disturb the quiet, comfort or repose of any person is hereby prohibited.
(b) Any person who violates any provision of this section shall be deemed to be guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor.
(c) Each day of violation of any provision of this section shall constitute a separate offense.
(d) The person operating or controlling a sound source shall be guilty of any violation caused by that source. If that cannot be determined, any owner, tenant or resident physically present on the property where the violation is occurring is rebuttably presumed to be guilty of the violation.

Can't find any decible limits, but I'm positive that there are some. Long story short, the Kazuma in Virginia is illegal also.
I'll try and find a decible level for your state though.
