Hey

I was wondering what would happen if I cut the exhaust directly in front of the resonator and put a 2.5 inch pipe back from there. What are the pros and cons?

you won't get a performance upgrade, just sound. ur still restricting it everywhere else. u may gain .5 whp @ 7k rpm. just sound and chances are it will sound bad!!

Well I have something like that done to my car.. Except they cut the resonator off and put a Magnaflow exhaust it its place and then did the straight pipe all the way back. It sounds nice and deep! Here's a link to my vids on YouTube.

But with no muffler it would sound pretty bad like ^^dude up there said^^ Lol

you need to get that tip fixed, looks like crap sitting crooked, plus it looks tiny, get a bigger tip. does sound pretty nice though

Are you talking the resinator before or after the rear tires? if you cut the small square one at the end it is barely any louder and you feel no gain at all. If you are talking both resinators, I removed them and replaced with straight 2 1/4" pipe. It actually feels a little slower off the line but maybe a little quicker in the 5k rpm range. I like the sound and it cost me about 20 bucks where as a cat-back would be 200+.
