pickin up the truck this morning i went to lower it today and when i was done went to cut off the rear muffler. I just have it as a turn down set up for now right behind the axle since im doing a mandrel 3 inch exhaust this week on the truck.

THe sound is amazing. No drone but you can really hear it outside the truck. If anyone wants to keep the stock muffler id just say cut off the rear muffler/resonator or whatever and have your shop weld in a 3 inch pipe in its place and put your tip on at the end. Will sound much better and wont be a ache to your wifes ears at all

EDIT: Oh wait, it's the SS, thought you were talking about the I6 :duh:

Nice, really want to hear a clip of an SS without the resonator, as that is a free way to get a nice growl to the stock exhaust (and I would definately do it if/when I get an SS:yes: )

Do you have the 4.2 or 5.3? I'm assuming 5.3 since your ID is NORCAL SS

Has any one done this to there 4.2? if what's it sound like?

cut mine off yesterday morning and put a 4 inch tip on. looks great and sounds sweet.
Took a look at the exhaust under my SS today. Looks like 2 mufflers. One behind the axle and one infront. Which one is the resonator and which one is the muffler? I'm guessing the smaller one is the muffler. Does it matter legally which one you remove? I would like to remove the resonater to get better sound. Which one should I remove?

Thanks

The one BEHIND the axle is the resonator
