Muffler delete and Res X-pipe
 
I'm getting my exhaust done soon, and I'm planning on doing a muffler delete, resonator delete, and adding a resonated X-pipe (to replace factory H-pipe). What do y'all think? Also, any recommendations on the resonated x-pipe that will fit? I'm looking into this one: Magnaflow 11386.

From what I've seen on here you can expect some rasp when going muffler free over 4k RPM's. I've heard the further towards the cats the resonator is the less rasp you'll hear but I have no experience with it. If you decide to go that route be sure to post some videos w/ sound.

Just after starting...

After complete warm-up just idling (you can hear some low thump outta the 6)...

A few taps / Revlimitor (in park)...

That's all I have access to off my phone... sounds much better. There is highway drone that overtakes stock radio (until about level 24+). My wife & I can still carry on a conversation while normal driving. Really feels & sounds good @ WOL. I plan on sound damp/shielding the whole underside & full trunk prior to a stereo system install anyhow. Will post up better examples tomorrow.


Here's the resonated x-pipe:

Wow. :confused0068:

This is just what I needed! Thanks for the upload. :bow:

Anytime...

I'll post others late tonight or tomorrow morning. Trust me those were quick captures on the day of install, it sounds much better.

I had a true xpipe before the resonated x muffler. Car pulls just as strong, but doesn't sound raspy/harsh like before. Another member on here put j-pipes like the solo performance cat-back system. You can order the j-pipes from jeggs.com & use search on here to assist the muffler shop if they are not familiar with install specs.

:thumbsup:

Thanks shady!

I am looking at getting my exhaust done soon, but I wanted to piece something together to have a more unique sound. I don't really know a good site to look other than like jegs or summit.

Any suggestions?
