Adding resonators?

I currently have roush axle backs and am thinking about getting a catted x pipe standard length. But I here that that roush and x pipes are a horrible combo lol would adding resonators make it sound nice and deep? If I were to add resonators, where exactly would they be welded in, the x pipe itself? Thanks everyone

Probably. They would cut a small portion out and weld them in. Someone correct me if i am wrong.

Yea. Usually shortly after the cats. You can compare to your existing one for reference. But i am assuming you are going with the high flow catted x pipe?

Yeah I was thinking BBK standard length x pipe that come with high flow cats and Vibrant 1792 Bottle Style Resinators ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000E3VHVO..._HEtvvb1CKSN9H ).

Yeah it might help. But should still sound really raspy. You are putting the two most raspy sounding item together lol

Shorty headers along with the resonators may tame some of the sound.

And autoanything has been known lately to have the hook up on bbk shorty ceramics. But you will have to call them.

Lol I heard h pipes are deeper than x pipes but they are more expensive. I would get a lethal performance offroad H pipe but they require a tune and don't wanna spend money on a tuner.

I have the roush ab with an o/r x pipe and lt headers and it was loud I had a catted x pipe and it was still crazy loud. I love the loudness it has with the catted x pipe but it was to much for everyday driving. So I added magnaflow glasspack resonators and it calmed down alot. It was a bit low so I switched out the catted pipe for the non catted and I love the sound!!!! It's a great muscle sound and of course at WOT it gets a bit raspy but it's nothing that kills the sound.

Sorry OP you had this coming. Why are you going with an X pipe? X pipe is the most raspy mid pipe for a car and you already have loud mufflers and a v6. So expect it to be raspy. You should have planned out everything before you embarked on this journey. Resonators are complete crap, and do nothing for drone, leveling rasp, and only move the tone around to something of a fart cannon on a small motor Honda.

They've worked for me but I am looking for a better setup I just haven't heard anything better :/ what do you suggest? I really like my sound and I've had many compliments saying it's perfect but idk I feel like it can be better...I have the LT headers already I think it would be a pain to switch out now no?

The high flow cat h pipe from them will give you hell when used with shorty headers. They are more designed for the cast iron headers. I'm partially not a fan of Roush. They are a straight pipe with a barrel around them for resonance properties.

An H pipe and borla. If you listen to the s types, they sound like Roush but no drone, and more refined. I have a pro chamber, but that's only if you want a classic hollow muscle car sound. Long tubes are already very raspy.

I have an Airaid CAI, BBK TB, BBK Shorties, Borla S-Types, and a Bama Race tune. IMO, my car sounds and runs amazing. I get ALOT of compliments of people digging my "5.0". Then I have to explain to them it is just a 6. The S-types on their own sound a tad ricey. The Shorties smoothed them out and now it sounds a little throatier. I have thought about a cut and clamp x pipe because if I do the BBK High Flow Catted X pipe, it will sound like a$$.

This is my experience though

Yes by going from LTs to Shorties you will lose mid to high range power, but your sound would be as high/raspy. At the end of the day it is what you want. Do you want something that sounds good and frees up a few ponies? Or do you want something loud that gives the most power? You gotta weigh the options.

Yea your right I mean when I didn't have resonators it was extremely loud like no car convo and a light tap to the pedal it screamed but at high RPM's it was raspy I was thinking of kicking out the resonators and going with magnaflow instead of roush ab.

I have no catalytic converters, and mine sounds very nice. Very little rasp. Of coarse it sounds like a v6 but no real rasp.

No but I can point you to what you want to know about them. You looking at comps, RTR, or the streets?

Stay away from RTR, they are just the streets painted black and priced up more. Comps are just straight pipe deletes, a muffler shop can do that for you for $40. Magnaflow streets are odd. On stock mid pipes, they are quiet and throaty. On a off road setup they sound nice but get exotic and raspy up past 4500 rpm
