Added Resonated X-Pipe (with vids)

Hey everyone. Just thought I would share a couple vids of the latest mod i've done in my quest to get a sound I am happy with out of my car. Some of you may know that when I added the American Racing LT headers to my car I was extremely unhappy with the sound. The car became extremely loud, raspy and ricer sounding. I mulled through a ton of options and rather that replacing my entire catback I decided to try out a resonated x-pipe from Magnaflow. My entire set up is as follows

MBRP Catback Exhaust (t304 stainless)
American Racing LT Headers w/ high flow cats
Magnaflow 2.5" resonated x-pipe
Airaid v2 CAI




Driving Windows Up:


For some reason when I try to embed these I just get white boxes...

The difference is HUGE. It had completely changed the sound of the car. If you look at my YouTube page there are videos of it from right after when I got the headers. This gave it a much lower tone for brought the volume down a lot. My biggest problem before was that when I did a cold start on the car it literally sounded like the worst rice burner o have ever heard. This definitely fixed that problem and I am much happier with the sound however I would still like a way to go more of a throaty low pitched rumble out of it like I had on my old 2000 V6 Mustang.

Yeah, mine had the low rumble masked by boom at low speeds, going to try mrtv2 and that should help.Magnaflows to muffled.
I have a question. judt did the fues pull after injen install just to clear out all the old crap but got the cel. I forgot the pull/replace sequence.I did 5 and 20, and put in 20 then 5. Tried again but put back 5 then 20 no luck.It worked before but not now. Guess I jsut need to drive it awhile.

Ya it definitely sounds much much better however now I have a problem. This morning when I got in and started driving I am getting a weird buzzing sound when I floor it. I don't think it has to do with the exhaust actually, I think it's just resonating at just the right frequency that there is something buzzing a little. You can only hear it inside the car. Probably just a loose screw or something. Oh well...another day another project lol

i agree...I would see if you have something touching the exhaust under the car...maybe the driveshaft tunnel brace...the stock one is thin enough it could be causing a buzzing sound....

I figured it out. It wasn't something with the exhaust I just had something in my trunk (where my sound system is) that needed to be tightened. Problem solved.

I'm glad I found this, I'll be getting the resonator to fix my BBK LT and MBRP cat-back rasp.
