you could weld in another smaller muffler somewhere in it that would make it quite, or you could weld in a piece of metal that will deflect the sound waves more and thus quieting it up a bit. not to sure wat to do seeing as i dont know wat yer exhaust looks like

If it was me I would just replace the muffler or put another muffler on there in addition to what you already have...

im with zach. how can they prove its too loud. if it is stay out of it when your in your neighborhood.

if you get it tested and it is under the noise limit, call the cops on them for harasment. or something.

The local city cops tried that with me when I had my trans-am with a 40 series SI/DO muffler. Do like I did, Call flowmaster and ask them to mail you the papers that come with the muffler when you buy it. That say the muffler is 50 state street legal.

I got that paper from them and I showed it to the police dept. and they never bothered me again.

Open pipes :)

Take the muffler off which is annoying people, send a memo around that the LOUD muffler has been removed for there comfort, and when the special quiet muffler you ordered arrives, you will install it immediatly. State in the memo that the expected shipping date is two weeks out.
Then drive around with open pipe, they will beg you to reinstall the 40
