Did you order it new? If so, show them the warranty card that came with it. If you don't have it, I can scan and send you a copy of mine. It's legal and meets all states decibel level requirements. Worse case scenario, ask them to test it with a decibel meter.

all you need to show them really but the actual document




Bolt-on stainless steel muffler improves exhaust flow, generates a 10-14 hp gain and a deep sound. Bolts on without cutting or modification. Emissions legal in all 50 states and meets DOT 95dB noise requirements

True. Are they saying you're in violation of noise limits or that the exhaust does not belong on your car? California tends to have the strictest automotive laws, so if the TRD passes there, it'll pass anywhere. In the end, they have to prove their accusations. So bring that to their attention. Just don't cave in and pay it off.

If you get someone to test the decibal level for you, get a certified copy of the equipment's calibration paperwork to prove that the equipment is working right. The judge will ask for it.
