ive heard if its under 5" tall it doesnt obstruct view but thats a rumor

The law in Alberta is the exhaust must exit behind the cab. Its a traffic violation if you don't and they will give you a heavy fine and or impound your truck. And if they give you the fine they give you afew weeks to fix the violation and if you don't then bigger trouble.

Your exhaust can not exceed 92 decibels at any time, if you modify it in any way and the guy with the tuxedo pants wants to be an a--hole he can make you get an engineered certificate to say it is legal. I do not know on a pick-up where the certificate is on a Freightliner it is in the middle of the dash. That is one of the things that if you want to play and the man wants to be, like he can, you will pay big time.

yes redneck ville here but I think they import the ocefers from the east.
Any modified exhaust can be a ticket. My sons friend had a fart can on his daytona, sounded like crap but was not really loud. he got a ticket for modified exhaust. There is a sight you can go and look up all the traffic violations and the definitions. I just don't know exactly where it is.

thats bull the only way they can give you a ticket is if its st piped u have a muff of any sort ur fine and there is no noise limit that 92 db is a crock of 1/10 cop cars are equitp with the sound meter thingers so the liklyhood of that happing is very low

No... but they can confiscate your car/truck and test it for anything while they have it. If it passes your off the hook, and if it don't... "pay to play".

remember owning and having a drivers licence/car/truck is a previlage and not a right.

Yes the turbo is a muffler, but its not a spark arrester, the stack impares you vision, does nothing for noise. Doesnt bother me if you do it, have fun, its Alberta.

I thought the 92db was just a city of calgary bylaw, and that there were no exhaust restrictions for diesel's as a whole in AB
