Pennsylvania Reintroduces Bill to Ban the Use of Aftermarket Exhaust Systems

Legislation (H.B. 1330) that would effectively prohibit the use of exhaust systems other than a “factory-installed muffler” or a “muffler meeting factory specifications” has been reintroduced in the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives.  The bill has been referred to the House Transportation Committee.        
 
Contact Members of the Pennsylvania House Transportation Committee Immediately to Request Their Opposition to H.B. 1330.
  • H.B. 1330 ignores the fact that aftermarket exhaust systems are designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions.
     
  • H.B. 1330 fails to recognize that aftermarket exhaust systems offer increased performance and utility. 
     
  • H.B. 1330 would make it nearly impossible for hobbyists to replace factory exhaust systems with more durable, better performing options.
     
  • H.B. 1330 perpetuates the erroneous assumption that enthusiasts who equip their vehicles with modified exhaust systems are involved in illegal street racing.
