Resonators

Ok so today i installed the bbk o/r xpipe, i also have pype bombs AB, im waiting for bama to send my tune, but the point is its every raspy and loud, i was tryna figure what would be a good set of resonators to put onto to quiet it down but sound good also. Comments and ideas would greatly appreciated

Resonators

You'll probably need a muffler change along with the resonators.

Well the x pipe equals rasp, and equipped with Pype Bombs more rasp. And the cyclone is already raspy to begin with. So, maybe someone will chime in that's been there.

Resonators

Maybe get some resonators off a coyote and see if it helps. If not maybe try a muffler change. And maybe putting some converters back on would too I'd think. I don't mess with cyclones so I'm just giving info I see from other experiments that might work for you.

Might as well start with resonators since it is the cheap option

First things first what kind of a sound are you looking for? Are you ok with some rasp? A lot or rasp or no rasp.

X pipe = **** load of rasp
Pypes = decent amount of rasp at certain rpm loads

Shorty headers will reduce rasp and deepen the tone but they can only help so much with an xpipe.

If you want it to be deeper and less raspy I would recommend tossing the pipes and going with something like the frpp axle back or the borlas

I personally have roush and know that with an xpipe they are raspier than a ticked off queen bee

After putting in a new set of axle backs then I would toss in a resonator of atleast 18" or longer. The longer it is the deeper and more rasp it will suck up.

There's literally thousands of options for you here. Let us know what sound your looking for and we will try to help you out the best we can.

So the bigger the resonator the deeper the exhaust will be?

Yes but also the deeper you go the quieter it will seem because deeper notes are heard as quieter to the human ear. There's a fine balance that has to be accomplished to get the tone you want and the loudness at the same time. I'm assuming the op went with the pypes for the volume so the resonators might not be the way to go for him

Hmmm I'm thinking of an off-road set up again but my magnaflow comps catback might not be the best bet I would say lol

Toss the xpipe. Go with an h pipe

Get a set of frpp or borlas and call it a day

I like a little rasp so I'm using roush at the moment. The Borla s types sound great aswell and have less rasp than a roush set up.
I've used the Mac axle backs and was not impressed with them on a few different set ups. Only time I likes them was with just them. Stock everything else b

If you want to get rid of the rasp, you'll need to put cats and resonators back on.

I'm going to go with the H pipe and frpp. Best sound I've seen on YouTube so far

Good choice. Frpp will be very similar to the Borla s types.

I experienced the same situation when I had my magnaflow comps with o/r x-pipe. Now I have bbk shorty headers with lethal performance o/r h-pipe with 18 inch resonators and magnaflow comps and it sounds deep and awesome. It has some rasp at higher rpms but that's how our v6's are.

Thanks you sir that would be much appreciated. I've never found a video with the off-road h pipe and magnaflow comps anywhere.
