poo on orp's... get a decent catback system like folks have already mentioned. Or snag a Hi-Flo cat, I've got one plus the lunchbox/resonator delete mod and it sounds great!

I made the same mistake. I hacked off the lunchbox which gave the car a cooler sound, then wanting more I went for the resanator. WOW, that was a mistake, made it sound like a 91 Civic with APC tail lights and primer colored doors. Once the exhaust heated up it toned it down, but not by much.

Your not alone...against my better judgement, we cut off the resonator. I hated it the moment we started the car. I swear, every Honda within a mile flocked to us. It was like blowing a dog whistle in the middle of a pound.

We put it right back on!
