Wow. When it comes to the sounds of these cars we have been beating this subject to death for quite a while but it all comes down to what you want. How about putting in the AFE intake and deleteing the air box? I've heard that soind and it sounds really nice. Everything else was stock. Let us hear how this setup sound eurowned.

Wow that sounds perfect. I think this answers my question on what to do. Nice thing about this mod is it's simple and saves a ton of weight.

I like the sound a lot. Is it legal for a car without muffler? If ilegal, I better go with the magnaflow catback system. Similar sound, $1000 more, but definitely legal.

I would think the resonators and cat would serve as a muffler. As long as you are not exceeding and noise laws, it shouldn't be a problem. Mufflers are for noise control and not emission related. You guys are making me want to make a trip to the muffler shop.

eurowned, car sounds awesome and really isn't loud. How much difference is noticed at highway speeds.

What are the difference in sounds when removing the resonators vs. the mufflers? I was initially going to remove all three resonators and add an x-pipe but now i'm confused and indecisive. Can someone please clarify?

It spuds very good, is it still pretty quiet at idle and cruise?

We are not sure yet really. I have magno flow mufflers and removing all three resonators and adding an Xpipe next week. If I had stock exhaust I would remove the stock mufflers instead fo the resonators just for the weight savings. Got to be close to 75lbs or more I would think? Thn if not loud enough for my taste I would remove one of the resonators and so on.

for you guys who are getting rid of the stock mufflers:

what tips are you putting on the pipes?

I really want to stay close to stock but my local shop only had the big round "import" looking kind.
