: ~*(PiC)*~ Racing Resonator Installed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay guys, to make the long story short................

<img src="http://www.jimmy540i.com/resonator.jpg">

1. I first removed the heavy 30lb-ish factory resonator and substituted with a straight pipe.

2. Car became VERY LOUD, especially @ 4800 + RPM (Too "Throaty", I can't stand it, sounds like a souped-up Honda IMHO). The 1/4-mile performance remains the same according to G-Tech)

3. Installed the Walker/Dynamic Racing Resonator (thanks to Humanoid), they have a little bit more back-pressure then the straight pipe.

4. After walker/Dynamax Resonator, car sounds a little bit quieter. Performance yet to be determined on G-Tech & 1/4-mile Track.

Stay tuned for performance report guys! So far so good. <B>I LOVE THE SOUND OF THE CAR NOW</B>! Nice & Deep! Hope this new resonator add some RWHP! =)

Anyone has the similiar experience?
