So I got a new front-pipe for my Trubendz exhaust. What I did have on there was the magnaflow resonator pipe. I got their HFC pipe. Slapped that thing on easy. Anyway. The sound is entirely different now. A good different. The volume level is pretty much the same but the rasp is entirely gone! I am very happy. Just a smooth deep tone throughout the RPM range. It used to get so raspy in the high RPM or when I just got on it but now it isn't raspy at all. Its so sweet.

So to all those that have looked at the kit with the resonator just go with the cat kit. Same nice deep magnaflow tone, same volume, without the raspiness. Any you have a cat on the car to boot! Awesome combo.

I said there was no raspiness before I got my header and that the only raspiness happened after the header when you got on it and in high RPM.

Yee ha, I can relate - we have the same exhaust setup.

Mine also got raspy (ricey) at higher RPMs until I played with the tip by deadening it with the silicone. And then I wrapped the header to cool things down under the hood and a nice surprise there was an even slightly deeper tone.

are you selling your resonator pipe? if it's a 2.5" version, I'll take it! :)

[woot] Magnaflow, FTW. I'm still waiting for my header.
Yeah magnaflow is awesome. Its such an agressive sound now. I just love it. And felt no power loss either.

Actually I was reading something in an import magazine once about HF cats. They dynoed a car with a test pipe and then with a HFC and the HFC only gave up one HP compared to the test pipe. 1HP is so negligable on a dyno...

It was interesting looking inside the pipe too compared to the stock cat. The honeycomb is so much more open in the HFC. Its amazing.
