ok now i have a question, a resonator works by bouncing the sound waves from the exhaust into each other, thereby cancelling them out right? how can something that is a straight shot bounce or reflect ,or whatever you want to call it, things into each other? wouldnt that require some sort of louvers or baffles or something?

anyone have pics of a cut open resonator? im just curious here as ive never seen one, and ive always heard that had no restriction, but the way they work doesnt seem to support that.

I can't find the pic of my resonator install from WCBF04, but I can tell you the pipe is 3" ID straight through. There are tiny holes in the inner lining, and glass packing material in it.

Mine is a good 30-36" long. It runs from the back of the cat all the way to the big bend.

Wow,

I didn't think this questrion would generate so much discussion.

Just for all concerned.

I will be running the stock Borsal dual exhaust from an SLE.

As I will be under the car I was thinking of removing the resonator but I think I will be leaving it in.

Thanks for all the info!
