Resonator Install (56K Might Be OK)

Welp as some of you know, my exhaust sounded like complete and utter CRAP after I installed my SVT Header and R/T High-Flow Cat. I e-mailed Trubendz.com and asked them if they could make me a center RESONATED section. They said for $125 shipped they'll make it for me, once i gave them the length of it. I measured 43 inches from the flange to the end of the pipe. A week later it came in. Well Packaged and Matched the other pipe to a T. I even got the boxes that the Resonator came in.

Before Resonator.......You'll need Quicktime

Before installed:




After Resonator.........You'll need Quicktime Again
http://media.putfile.com/After-Resonator

The vids don't really do it any Justice, but DAYYYYUUUM it sounds a hell of a lot better and no raspyness at all. It sounds like it did before the SVT Header install just a little louder. It's GREAT and I LOVE IT!!!!! Enjoy!!!!

EDIT:

Putfile BLOWS!!!! They should be up shortly!

Edit the Edit:
BEFORE


AFTER:

What are you asking?

I had a non-resonated Magnaflow Exhaust before, now i have a Resonated Magnaflow Exhaust. I just swapped out the center section on my car. The part that goes from the Flexpipe to the Muffler.
