Default brother issues

okay i got the bonny and my bro has done so much to his car and well i guess he dont wanna tell me anything he did dualz with his but he says he doesnt really need back pressure since he has so much hp so he runs straight pipez to the back but he said that if i wanted my hp back i would have to go with a rezignator

A resonator has no restriction, and therefore has no effect whatsoever on backpressure. Your brother is wrong. Might be a tough pill to swallow, but it'* true. The 3800 is a unique animal.

Your Brother and your Dad aren't going to be a big help to you if they hate V6'*. My effective displacement with the blower is enough to keep pace with most V8'* out there.

Want backpressure back? Forget the resonator, quit listening to your brother, and listen to the experiences here.

We have the most success with a high flow Cat and a perfromance SINGLE muffler with one inlet and two outlets.

Copy PROVEN success. Ditch everything you've done and go back to that.

No car needs backpressure. They need highest CFM = highest scavenging and lowest backpressure therefore, the most power.

And a huge tail pipe doesn't give you better CFM necessarily.
