My exhaust guy was originally going to install a glasspack backwards in my car (no factory resonator in 92 or 93, so I had some rasp from my Magnaflow setup). He got creative and was actually able to fit in a 24" Magnaflow resonator by cutting off the flanges. I have some pics of how tight the fit is, but the point is that it mellowed out the tone IMMENSELY. I used to turn heads driving around town, and the Woodburn runs on Video were amazing loud when driverjohn and I ran side by side. Now it only 'comes to life' when the CAR comes to life.
I'm glad I added a resonator, and this is why Jason suggests keeping yours.
