Well i guess that depends on where you live and what you plan on doin with your car...

I dunno if they have emissions testing in Utah or not, but that will determine wether or not you can run a test pipe. If you're plannin on goin BT at some point, you could re-plumb the whole exhaust with like ~2.75" stainless and get rid of the resonator, but that'll be loud as f*ck. If not, i'd just stick the magnaflow on there and leave everything else as-is. If you search on youtube there's a butt-load of sound clips on there, sounds pretty cool.

Ya I have it installed, if i do anything else I will just go with a k04. I was thinking something with a little more sound but with out the resonator it sounds shitty.

So if I run 2.5 all the way to the cat how much should this cost for a shop to do? Already have the magnaflow muffler
