I have an idea on what to do with my exhaust when i do the RES. delete. My main question is, should i go with a Resonated on NONRes tip? i found a magnaflow tip for $70. and it is resonated. they have something similar for about $20. less which is non-resonated. which should i choose? from what ive read etc, the resonated will be quieter, but is it needed?

not needed, in fact.. they just look as if they are larger for the sake of having a resonator, not sure if its actually effective since you'll be removing a significantly larger chamber resonator. i would just go with the non-resonated.

ok, sounds like ill save a few bucks and get a NON-RES tip. now my only problem is the local shops are retarded and they are saying they cant do what i want.( too custom) i was gonna do the body cutting, just need them to bend pipe and do 2 welds

Do yourself a favor and talk to the guy doing the work, not the shop manager. Seems to me mechanics are ambitious when it comes to trying new things, especially when you go to the shop at the end of the day and the boss is gone already.

what kind of pipe bending are you going to have done? if you chop the resonator and leave the hanger thats right next to it - on the side facing the front of the truck - you wont need but 18 inches of straight pipe or so, depending on how long your tip is.

no intention and thread jacking here, just a quick question because it fits nicely into the title of this thread.

im doin the delete asap, just gotta buy the tip and take it to the shop. Im going with a weld-on tip. the one i want is 2.25" ID in...will this size work? I know some people have used 2.5 and 2.75 so im not sure if the smaller diameter will make a clean weld to the pipe extension. just need a quick answer before I buy it from ebay. Thanks!

my tip will prob be a 2.25" also, shouldnt be a problem. i talked to a shop today and they said no problem doing my work. hes a little concerned about some clearance issues though. it sucks that i dont want to talk about the setup too much i wanted it to be a surprise but the secret will come out tomorrow at the Delaware Meet. I need suggestions etc.
