new to this forum

I was just thinking about replacing the resonator with a cheap glass pack muffler and wondered what that would do to the performance of the vehicle and what it would sound like?

Performance? Not much if any.

Sound? Loud and a bit tinny. Very glass pack-y

I put a glass pack in mine but I. The middle of the cat back/back pipe(whatever you call it, long straight part).

It got rid of a lot of the tin sounding part.

Buy a poly mount from Massive or CFM

Or an OEM mount from Ford/motorcraft

The rest are total crap.
