    Default Resonator advice, Vibrant or Dynomax

    I'm about to get a resonator for my 3" catback

    Still debating between Vibrant Vibrant Exhaust Fabrication - Standard Resonators UNIVERSAL 0 - 0 17950

    It's a 5" body and 18" length

    And this Dynomax

    Dynomax Race Bullet Muffler 3" Ctr In 3" Ctr Out | eBay

    4" body and about 3 inches longer than the Vibrant

    Which resonator are you runing on your 3" N/A VE's?

    im sure the vibrant would sound good, i have one of their mufflers on the g20 with no resonator an it doesn't sound that bad at all believe it or not..

    on my se-r im running 3" mandrel exhaust with a huge (i think bigger then 18") magnaflow glasspack and a 4x9x18 magnaflow muffler.. i love the sound of my car, its deep as hell an aggressive but not too loud

    Get the longest one you can find. If it doesn't fill the whole straight section then get two smaller ones. But I hate the noise...

    Before I started this thread I did a search and found your setup Eggman, loved it.

    The thing is I already got a muffler, is an HKS Hi power and before I get the new 3" catback on the car I'd like to weld a resonator.

    My current setup is 2.5" mandrel bent piping and 2 Magnaflow resonators a lil bit longer than yours and the thing is QUIET, that quiet you can barely notice the VVL popping.

    Now I would like to unleash some power and get a different exhaust tone that's why a single resonator would do the trick, I'm just tired of being in such an sleeper car

    With some minor massaging of the tunnel with a hammer,you can fit a Vibrant ultraquiet resonator under there after the cat.I also remove a small section of heatshield but the part over the cat remains.
    I did this by hacking up a Megan catback that was on the car already.I reused the piping and moved the existing megan resonator back behind the vibrant and added a Vibrant muffler to get the Megan fartcan off there.
    Sounds real nice,this a a 2.5 though.






    started out like this,yuk

    Crazy I was thinking about doing that on mine. Those resonators work really good. With no Cat and that resonator and a twin loop muffler the car is crazy quiet.

    Well I got the 5" Vibrant 17950

    I always have been a Magnaflow customer so now I wanted to try some new brands, that's the reason I leaned toward the Vibrant.

    Part of what makes a resonator to be quieter in an exhaust is the amount of fiber, I did some calculations about the amount of each one the Vibrant had the most.

    In one of my cars (Spec V) I got the biggest Magnaflow I could fit in, it was a 6" round body and over 30" length, the drone and angry bees were gone and the sound was amazing, the 6" body had several clear issues tho

    I almost bought those super quiet Vibrant units for my NA DE B13 (SSAC, 2.5 mandrel bent piping). I was not at all sure they would fit, but apparently they fit quite well. Good to know for future reference, as I prefer an ultra-quiet exhaust.

    For the OP, Kevo, that would probably be too quiet as he wants a bit more aggressive exhaust note/sound.

    Well the Vibrant arrived a week after my 3" system went into the car, I gotta tell you HKS muffler is a great product, in idle and part throttle this system is SILENT, as much as my previous 2.5" with 2 big ass resonators...

    Once you floor it and above 4000RPM there's drone but nothing serious, will get the Vibrant in by the next week and I guess it should help with the drone.

    Gonna get before and after Vibrant resonador vids
