hey guys
I have a question about my exhaust system.
So a while ago I got an x-force 2 1/2" cat back system (actualy stops at resonator?!?) and although I like it wouldnt mind it being a bit louder so....

I know this pic is bad but bare with me lol

drew it up on paint, so that what my exhaust consists of up to the cat, What would it sound like if I took out the resonator and put a 2 1/2" pipe from where the cat back stops to the actual cat (which I will be purchasing a magnaflow highflow cat soon too) and leaving as just the two xForce mufflers.... because at the moment between the reso and cat it is still the stock 2 1/4" pipe.

Its on a BF by the way.

Do you want higher or lower rev noise? Because i have heard if you have a resonator after the mufflers its lower down noise (like mine) and if before you get higher range noise !

I would get rid of the last muffler, and the resonator, then make the first muffler straight through and then put a hotdog either side of it !
