I know the sound of the magnaflow has been beat to death and after reading old posts for over an hour, who can tell me how big of a difference it is to remove the resonator from the magnaflow 6s exhaust? I'm about to get mine installed next week and i'm thinking i want them to take the resonator out because i hear it's deeper and louder....please confirm...

Damn... I had a video linked to a MF with the resonator so you could compare them but, the link is dead. SOMEONE didn't keep it on their server :sarc:

Lucky for you, I've got it saved to my computer. I'll upload it to the server via Ftp, pull the link, and post it here as soon as it's done, which should be just a few mins.

The things I do for you man ;)


*edit*

Damn I'm fast! Customer service at it's best!

And yes, this was the video that I put my little brother in the trunk and told him to hold my camcorder :p So long ago.

Just spend the extra money and get the injen exhaust. Its made so much better and sounds better too.

I'll agree with Daishi. The Injen exhaust is the damn best one out there, sound wise, and it looks damn nice w/ the canister style mufflers under the car. AND ... and... and tips line up perfectly, unlike many common complaints w/ the MF's.

IMO, taking out the resonator makes it a slight bit louder and it makes it deeper as well. At least that was my experience when I got mine done. Others responded the same as well when I had like a dozen made for other members.

It's all personal preference but, if I had it to do again... I wouldn't waste ANY of my time and just buy the Injen SES exhaust system. The thing's perfect.

You guys hear the MS exhaust at all?? It's damn near 700 bucks shipped up here where I live, I was actually thinking about just putting another 100 down on injen....but its always cool when you got a MS CAI and MS SPRINGS....MS exhaust would be nice....any comments?

I don't think I've heard the MS exhaust yet, got some clips or know where some are?

And by you saying, "... putting another 100 down on injen," do you mean you'd be paying $800 to get it shipped to you? That's insanity man, if you're SERIOUSLY interested in the injen, you can probably get it cheaper than that through a forum sponsor.
