I have a 93, which is the last year without a resonator, and an 80 series and it'* plenty loud (especially in below 0 temps like now).

I'd double check under your car to see what'* going on, perhaps you have a late 93, and maybe got a resonator put on from the factory. Other then that, a High flow cat really loudened up Haro'* old 95 SSEi with an 80 series muffler over his OE one.

My buddy put a 40 series on a Dodge 3.9L(?) and you could hear him go WOT over a mile away. That'* plenty loud.

well that all sounds good but if i really had a resonator on my car,were would it be.and as stupid as it sounds i have never seen a resonator.but i know i have an exhaust leak right on the EM.i think if i fixed that i might get my red eyes to sound perty savage.

a resonator would be after your cat, before your muffler if you have one..

If you fix the exhaust leak, your car will be slightly quieter.

If you fix your exhaust leak at the manifold, your car will actually run right with no KR. That should be your FIRST concern.

chemicall, can you please use punctuation, captials, and proper grammar in your future posts? My head hurts from trying to read the post above.
