Exhaust is quiet.....

I got an exhaust and the dude told me this one gets loud as hell, but right now its just deep and quiet and doesnt do much...i would like a little but more sound out of it, well a lot more, and im not gonna change the headers until i got mo money, and i still have the resonator on, i want to take it off SO bad but im afriad of how much itll cost and is it worth it?... ive heard it only costs about 30-40 bux, but i want to recheck it, and how much sound does it add?


thanks

Same thing happened to me when I put my exhaust on...
I liked the sound it put out, but it was very low, and it would fade away when my RPMs climbed over 2500...
I cut the resonator off, and I love the way it sounds now!!
Cut that **** off man! $40 bucks @ Meineke and they'll put your car up, cut the resonator off, and replace it w/ a piece of pipe. It took em about 10 min. when they did mine, and I was all grins as I drove away....

try changing your stock pipes to 2.25 inch from the cat all the way back that should help

Is it an exhaust or just a muffler? People get exhaust and muffler mixed up sometimes, they're not the same thing obviously. I had an Apexi N1 muffler before, and the only noise it made was when I turned the car on, thats it [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif[/IMG]. Well I got the resonator taken off, and I got what I wanted at the time, it was MUCH louder. It sounded ok at low RPM's, but kinda like a lawnmower. Toward high RPM's it got very raspy. You
ll probably get crap talk about how bad it sounds, unless you actually have the exhaust system with the catback piping. If you did have the piping though, it would be pretty loud I would expect. I'd advise you not to take it off unless you're doing piping, cuz it won't sound too good dude, take it from me, I've done it before. Oh yea, don't go to midas or wherever, they RAPED me in install. Resonator removal, straight pipe, and install, $109!!.

just tell them to run 2.25" pipe from the cat back and take off the resonator. Does it have a silencer? If so put it in, it will sound much better

If you remove the resonator, it could get really LOUD....If you already have a complete cat-back, make sure the shop doesn'yt butcher the system you paid good money for....have them make a pipe to slip-fit into the place of the resonator assembly....it'll cost you 50-60 bucks to see if you like it, but if it doesn't sound right at least you can put the resonator back in..........

you left them resonator on. that was dumb. and that must have a been a btch for the guy to put on. i got a APEXI N1 and 2.25 in pipng all the way adn no resonater. it sounds great. and where are u getting the prices on that 30-40. mine was 175 to do everything. cut old off. bend new 2.25, and weld the muffler on. and that was cheap compared to other places that i checked out before.
