Default OEM Exhaust

Quick question fellas! Is there any way to keep the stock exhaust and just get a straight pipe or b-pipe to gain horses but the oem look?

There was someone that did that but i dont recall his exact setup beyond the stock mufflers. I'm pretty sure he kept a resonator on there since it was too much droning without it.

Yeah you can always keep the same tip and just change the piping... I recommend the magnaflow tips cuz they look the same as the stock ones, but I think they look a lot better.. you would just need to cut the muffler off and then have it welded to the new piping...

So how is the sound with a different resonator?

It's hard to answer because there are a handful of variations, each making a different sound. You'd probably have to search through vide and see what you like.

It seems that the actual length of the resonator it has a lot to do with it as well. The OEM is huge but i sort of remember a member going to one that was 18inches long and he said the droning was awful. Dont be surprised if this turns out to be a trial and error type of process.

If at all possible, try going to a meet and chances are someone will have an aftermarket exhaust that you can at least get an idea from.

I'd have to agree with BDizzle8832. They are pretty nice.
