    Great product indeed. I have had a couple of his H-Pipes, and I currently have an H-Pipe, and a set of his axlebacks with Super 44s. Unfortunately, he has discontinued his work for the GTOs.

    What I don't like about my Magnaflow system (with the stock resonators) is that at part throtle it sounds loud and not that good (like woooo woooo - nice description I know). There is no growl to the system. Once I get into the gas it sounds great and throws out a nice growl. But at part throtle it sounds bad and annoying. Will the resonator delete bring the growl back into the system or do I need new mufflers?

    Either way I would remove it. It's just another resriction. So remove it and see if it gains the deepness you want and if not put a pair of Spin Tech Pro Street's on it and enjoy.

    The tone is already deep, but I want more growl. Maybe I prefer the sound of a chambered muffler, but I don't have the $$ to replace my cat-back. I hope that the resonator delete will make the 'growl' come out. Where can I get a stainless pipe to get rid of the resonator?

    Go to an exhaust shop and have them cut it off and weld a couple pieces of pipe in it's place.
