Default Dynomax muffler

I just got this installed and ewwww! I feel like I'm driving a Honda Civic. It'* loud and nasty I can't even tell Hp my car picked up after the tune-up because of how loud it is. Are resonator tips any effective? If so, how would I disconnect that square metal thing thats placed in the cut-outs where the tail pipes sit? I read around and I'm also thinking about a glass pack at the end of the converter. Also I think I lost a little back pressure would using 2" tail pipes help this, because my muffler is 2.5 in/out. Dam I wish I kept my stock muffler

Yeah if you bought the cheaper $40-50 Dynomax Super Turbo like my dad has on his Durango, then no, it won't sound good. The super turbo only sounds good on V8'*.

Trigga, please don't reply over and over to yourself. Edit your previous post next time.

Either ditch the muffler or add a resonator between the cat and muffler. Resonator tips are virtually useless.

If you want it Quite and Stock sounding. Then Yes. you will have to change you muffler. a Rez will not Help.

I have the same one as you

But mine sounds really nice. because i also have a High Flow cat. But i also like mine Loud.
And for some reason, mine does not Sound "ricey"
