Thats my setup. I had the lunch box cut outa dn pipe with a tip put there. Then the resinator cut out with a 12" glass pack put in. It has a nice deep throaty sound to it.

Heres my sound clip. Yes I know its a SPI not a Dtec, but it wont sound that differant.

Has anyone tried this on a wagon? I once heard that it made a droning resonance inside the car at certain RPMs. Any one have an experiance with this?

I don't have a wagon, but I don't hear it inside at all.

My 09 SES does not have it (I noticed when I installed the hitch). So if you donot want to use flex pipe get the tailpipe off an 09 SES.

You must have the special "performance exhaust" that some of them come with. My 09 had a box. I never got around to doing a Lunch box removal I just did the whole exhaust.
