    Default How loud is too loud....?

    So im heading to Saratoga NY in a couple of weeks and bringing the jet boat with me... I checked the local ordinance and they say 86 Decibles is the max at 50 Feet....


    How loud is that and do you think at idle my 350 with OT headers is gonna break that?


    BTW any of you boys up in NY near Saratoga Springs?

    Running any Baffles? Are the OT headers dry or water injected?

    Go to wal-mart's electronics section and buy a decibel-meter, do the test yourself, then you'll have some idea of how close you are.

    That's funny 71. For what it's worth through transom headers draw a lot less attention from leo's than ot's. I've yet to run accross a leo with a db meter .
