From what I have read, the longer you keep the resonator/glasspack the deeper the sound and less rasp.
So for my exhaust the longest I can get in looks like a 21" length body with a 25" overall length.. which is basically identical to the stock resonator on my car. the glass pack is a 3 1/2" diameter body.. compared to the stock resonator that looks to be about a 6" diameter.
I guess I might be the guinea pig lol.. I might have to go ahead and do this.
FINAL question..if I hack off the stock resonator and put in the glasspack I HAVE to get a 2 1/4" inlet/outlet glasspack (for length reasons) Is this going to cause a problem, major restriction, etc.. in my exhaust being it is 2 1/2" from the manifolds back to the "Y".....or is it nothing to worry about being the exhaust goes down to 2 1/4" anyways once it gets to the Y and through the mufflers? From what I understand your exhaust only flows as good as your most restrictive portion..and if it is already 2 1/4" elsewhere in the exhaust it shouldnt matter to put a 2 1/4" glasspack in correct?
