Default Resonator

Now as some of you have seen in my sig. I have been planning on getting a new muffler...well my muffler is really starting to go now, it sounds horrible it is rattling badly sometimes. Anyways I decided to do a cat-back on my car. What I would like to know, and yes I know it'* been asked but I can't find any, is what kind of resonator should I get. Some links would be appreciated. Also as low priced as possible without being so cheap that it'll suck. Thanks a lot guys.

it really depends on whether or not you like to say hold conversations or listen to the radio in your car, cause I cant really do either, bit then again my Bonne isnt a daily driver either, so its OK for it to be insanely loud. Keep the res, or even better have a new 2.5" res put on with the rest of the exhaust!

I was thinking of putting on a new one, but I don't know where to get one and Will seems to think stock will do.

just depends on whether yer doing a full cat back.....if you are then go to a parts store and ask them if they can get you a 2.5" res...although the stock res is fine for a good exhaust I believe a little larger couldnt hurt

I am doing a full cat back...so could I go to Advance or should I look elsewhere? How long should I get it?

I would suggest measuring the length of the one you got, and going into any parts store and asking if they can get you one that length but with whatever pipe size you want.
