So like my sig. states. I currently have a custom SRI i made and a 2.25" catback exhaust without a resonator and a magnaflow muffler. (basically straight pipe after the flex with magnaflow). The dilemna....just put on a RT Cat and my car now is a horrifying symphany of buzzes, rattles, and pings. I am now the leading US provider in rice patties.

I would like everyone to post which exhaust they think goes best with an SVT, SRI, and RT Cat. I have heard all sorts of clips, but unless you hear them in person, what you hear through vid posts is never exaclty what you get. I just don't want anymore suprises.

Here are clips of how it sounded pre RT Cat

Already have magnalfow too late. Here are the vids i with the Non resonated magnalfow and RT Cat. Both clips are at wide open throttle and it doesnt sound too bad. I need to throw a friend in the hatch and cruise in a parking lot...thats where the rice patties are made....during cruising.

This is pulling revving and pulling away

Bet your car's really popular with the neighbors! I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest a stock SVT phone-book muffler. It's not the best looking thing I've ever seen, but I really think it's one of the sweetest sounding exhausts I've heard on a 4-cyl.
