No, it's not that. We just can't understand you lol.
Adding a rear resonator will probably make 2 tenths of f**k all difference to your power output.

pfft there's no way a cat back 2.5 is louder than the legal limit. i can barely hear mine and i have no rear resonator. it has to be legal i reckon.

keep resonator on unless ur an anttention seeker. wont make any difference in power but will make the car sound better. without resonator the zorst sounds weird imo

Every exhaust is different. Different brands adn there differing mufflers will effect the noise and volume, it's not as easy as say this will sound like that and that will sound like that other one.
You can always add or remove the resinator later, so don't stress about it too much it's not a commitment that your making for the rest of the cars life!

I have none on my car and I love the sound :twisted:
I was a bit worried when I first got it that it might be too loud but the bloke at the exhaust shop said if it was too loud then he'd swap it over for free. The exhausts come in 2 pieces anyway (atleast the redbacks do) The main muffler goes in a fairly straight section from the cat to the diff then the 2nd piece is either a twisty mandrel bent bit that goes up over the diff and out the back or if you get the resonator I think it goes under the diff and doesn't have as many bends.

If you've got a manual I reckon it'll be ok, it probably wouldn't be much chop in an auto though.

Shugg had a resonator in his then decided to get rid of it after hearing mine but after a month or so he put it back in. Each to their own.
