I'm from wilmington, NC. And went to ECU. NC has emissions testing, but they are not super strict. As far as modded cars go. I have a friend with an RX-7 that blows 6inch flames out the ass pipe when he shifts and he has never been messed with. I used to have an Eclipse GSX with a really loud exhaust, they never said anything to me...also, north carolina is a big racing state, there are tracks in almost every county(it seems like, maybe not EVERY county,, I mena, there are 100 of them.) good luck out there. ECU Halloween is awesome. and check out wilmington, the november neap tides are great there if you surf and have a good wetsuit.
Wow, it can turn well too?
