    Default straight pipes

    2.25 would sound raspy, like mine, just giving you that warning.

    I have 2.25 from the cat and it sounds good. But mines not the usual setup, Most people go for the Muffler/Tip exhaust. My muffler is in front of the rear wheels under the car. Then it Y's out to 2 - 4" dia x 22" long slanted chrome tips.

    well im actually removing the exhaust resonator and welding a pipe in place of it, so ill still be running stock headers, both stock cats, stock piping, and stock muffler. so hopefully it wont sound too bad, if it does, ill jus reweld the resonator back on :/
    only thing not stock is my sri which sounds deep and im jus hoping it follows threw the exhaust

    what if you hollow out the (i guess its a resonator) either right before the flex pipe or right after it. its the one right before where the cat back gets bolted to theexhaust. ive been thinking of doing this since i got my cat back exhaust.

    has anyone done this? and if so how does it sound?

    not many newer cars contain teh stuffing stuff thats in mufflers/resonators, a resonator is basically allowing the waves fo exhaust to enter and it boucnes back meeting another wave cutting thr exiting wave in half, which reduces sound. and air flow presumably. im just welding a pipe in place of the resonator.

    the thing further back is a second cat, i think that's what your talking about, and hallowed out it makes the car sounds mean as hell with the resonator off.

    What about just taking the second cat out, or does the empty shell help with resonance. Also Smiley those tips look like they should be on the back of a Pickup truck. I kind like them though. I am sure they sounded mean.

    no the second cat is right after the header bolts to the exhaust and the resonator is jus after it, its about a foot long and its about an inch more wided than the exhaust pipe.

    no need to hollow out the cats though, i think newer cars are already hi flow. so doing that would only really hurt it other than for sound.

    the resonator is the "centre section" or midle silencer, which just reduces exhaust flow noise.

    also that is NOT our exhuast system, thats just a random google image search

    Heh that's funny its not a high flow cat and does benefit if you hallow it out, just make sure you hallow it out all the way cause i didn't and used to shoot fireballs of loose cat out the end. but yes it goes cat on the manifold, then another cat further down, then the resonator.
