^^^^ Yea, the whole point of getting my exhaust properly fixed instead of the bolt-on temporary I have now is because when i go over speed bumps or I back out of my garage that damn thing is hitting the pavement and is making me nervous. So ill stick with welded and take it to a Midas instead.

Thanks for your input. One other question, does length of the resonator matter? I heard that it changes the sound. I want a really low, deep, burbling sound like you hear on those old classic V8'*.

I didn't think it was possible...figured maybe you entered a different planet..for shipping. Wow.. that is correct and they are insane on that charge. I might call and see if there is a better method of shipping.

Otherwise.. correct..that wouldn't be an option.

I would go from 2.5 to the muffler (Walker superturbo or any high performance muffler) to 2.25 out the back to give it a jet affect and give you torque, I wouldn't use a resonator but I would use a magnaflow super cat (monolythic) converter for straight flow cat and still be able to go through emmissions and headers for grand prix'* (jet hot coated).
