Ok we obviously have a misunderstanding here. I (and a good number of people I know) use the term resonator interchangeably with the bigass coffee cans that people put at the end of their pipe<--that's what I thought Lyons451 was referring to.UfoZ8myCow said:What the hell are you talking about? Do you even know what a resonator is?? Obviously you dont, a resonator is something that helps bring the sound levels down on an exhaust. Most cars come from the factory with at least one of them stock... Some luxury cars use 2 resonators before the muffler(s). And how would a resonator make your car look like more than it is when it is UNDERNEATH it?
Goddamn man, consider yourself wnedsmas
I got a magnaflow resonator and a muffler. Its loud. It's not annoying lound, since it produces a low rumble instead of farting sounds (and thats on I4).l33tGreenCamry said:Yah Lyons go with the magnaflow.... it will sound nice but not so loud that I could hear your car coming from a mile away, just when I pass you by.:thumbup:
actually tips do affect the way car sounds. my first car was a 85 escort wagon my muffler fell off so i ripped out the entire exhaust system and built headers and a straight exhaust with nothing to restict it. needless to say the car was loud. so i took the tip i had in my back yard (specs: 4inch tip hollow 4-6inches long) and it changed the tone of the car after a few minutes of driving. the car had a deep low tone and when i revved it it didn't pop or anything it still had a deep roar. i did the same set up to my 84 ranger and got the same results as well as on my 85 accord. so don't say they make no difference. i've been messing with exhaust tips for a while now to find one that make the sound i like on my wagon. my set up is 2x cherry bomb turbo II mufflers and no resonator so i got a good deep soud already just need the added benifit of the tips. oh yeah it's a 1mzfe btwryuji16 said:tips do nothing to affect the sound, theyre basically for your visual preference.
