Can you weld one of the factory resonators back in-line with the exhaust?

I've thought about that, only issue being its not the same diameter as the new pipe.

Sounds to me like someone didn't do any reading on the exhaust before buying it. Most people that ended up buying the race exhaust, bought the piece that makes it a stealth.

Should have paid the extra money up front, since you'll be spending it now.

I'd just order a stealth muffler.

hey did you install on sedan or hatchback? I bought mine Exhaust USED for my 2013 Sedan and was wondering when I cut off my factory exhaust I noticed I had a extra Hanger mount on the FS Werks Long Mid Pipe set up. So I looked way into the rear axle and found a small spot where I could add a small rubber exhaust Hanger to match the FS werks hanger. Didn't know if the guy forgot this in the sale or Ford changed designs on the 2013's. The Exhaust is loud initially but it'll tone down after awhile mine has a Few thousand miles and its very manageable just crazy cause now I can hear the DCT downshift I feel like im driving a stick again lol!
