Hey guys so I'm pretty new here and after reading through many threads I've decided to remove the resonator on my '04 LS. I just want a little better sound without droppin all my college money on a cat-back. I like the look of a lot of the longer tips where you can't necessarily see the tip welded to the pipe. So I was wondering if it's possible to just take an 18" tip and weld it straight to where the resonator is cut off from. I'm definitely no welder and my dad and I do all the work on it pretty much so I don't have a mechanic I can just go run to and ask. Any help is appreciated, and I have seen how helpful everyone on here is.
