Says its illegal and shows me a picture he just took of the muffler showing its straight through design.

Gives me a ticket for having no mufflers.

Anybody know anything about this?

As far as i was aware the Roush is legal in All US states and Canada.

Looks like ill be going to court... just need some good info.
If it was the U.S., I would say sue the PD for a violation of civil rights (4th amendment). Taking photos is the equivalent of a search you did not consent to and a very good argument can be made that the muffler is not visible to the plain eye and that the cop had to cross a threshold that probable cause for a traffic stop did not allow him to.

In Canada, all I can do is wish you good luck.
