^ Ive always done before and after with all my past cars... but being new here in texas i have no idea of where i can find a nice,respectable dyno place. Ive also been so busy with work that i prob wouldnt of had time

I feel power in just about the entire power range... most noticeable at mid-high, the engine just screams, and the engine feels free and pushes me back to the seat a bit more

I have dominic's flex/orp with trubenz borla setup (with the Magnaflow 10416). The drone on the highway is driving me crazy. I was able to handle it for a couple of years but its time for a change. I went ahead purchased the Magnaflow 10436 (thanks fast_ryda) in hopes it will bring down the noise a little. If that doesn't help much, I'll be looking for a HFC.

HFC bring the HWY drone down A LOT and kills some of sound but not too bad. One thing I miss is the loud gunshot pop when shifting or downshifting under load....that was about the only thing I liked about my ORP.

Yeah, it's pretty crazy. I get a lot of looks when I'm downshifting. Sounds great, but when I'm trying to have a conversation in my own car sucks!

I just had the resonator installed today, WOW! what a difference. I bought the 10436 (thanks fast_ryda) and the difference is incredible. I almost miss the previous sound... almost....

I have had my resonator for about a week and took a trip to Houston, so good highway miles. It seems to have a louder drone than before the resonator at highway speeds (70-80). Anyone else have this issue?
