    I dont have a resonator.

    I have a Flowmaster Super 44 Muffler.

    Thinking about taking cat off and band-clamping a hollow pipe in its place until i need emissions.

    Discuss.

    thanks, im in love with it too, it completely sprayed my cousins camera tho, he wasnt too happy about that haha. how are your eyelids sitting on ur headlights? i just color matched mine and stuck them but if you look at them from the side u can see that the lids arent flush with the light, maybe the tape is too thick but i doubt it cuz its just the 3M double sided, it looks awesome from the front but on the side you can kinda tell and it kinda bugs me

    thers a tacoma with a straight pipe near my house and it sounds really weird at time and other times really nice, can u expand on why that is? lol is it more throaty or high pitched? my super 44 is a little deep and then as the rpms rise its a little more on the high end which is what i like but i just want it super loud but not sounding like crap
