Exhaust Matter

Hi all. Just wondering how to maintain the legality of an exhaust... Previously used an illegal exhaust from the previous owner, sand the serial number and all. But when transferred to me, I change to stock, just to keep white ants away. Now not shiok no rumbling sound, but my car no legal exhaust in SG. Wondering which part of the exhaust can be modified without the need to worry about legality?

Is something like this, add on to my stock okay, just example only...

This one not ok.
Coz this one includes muffler, so need approval. Basically, LTA's basis for this is noise pollution, so they want to check first.

Just exhaust tips is fine and no need approval. But won't really change the sound.

Ahh... I see... So nothing can be changed except the tip... If I were to change the tip with the muffler, how do I go about to get LTA's approval? Is it expensive?

If got legal exhaust from local wotkshops/exhaust specialists, can change. Will have a cert and a processing fee. About 1 or 2 hundred bucks the last time I heard.

Otherwise, I guess have to email LTA to ask. But they also damn 1 kind, will always say cannot this, cannot that.

Alternatively, ask those workshops that specialize in exhaust, like Jeep Chee or Fong Kim.

Why don't u get the cheapest option? I think it's legal too. Only $10 for a pair. Easy to install. Just screw it at the end if each tail pipe. May not sound like the real bov but at least u can still hear the psssst pssst noise.

Google turbo whistles.

Well some will operate muffler. Looks good on the outside, empty on inside. Fyi, inspection confirmed fail.
