Has anyone done it? Where do you get the resonators from? How much did it cost to get them welded on? Could you tell the difference in rasp before/after?

Basically I have Helix test pipes with a Gruppe-S Y-pipe, and while I LOVE the tone I'm getting, I'm getting a lot of rattles and rasp too. I'm thinking I can brace the Y-pipe and keep it from rattling, but I'm going to try to improve some rasp too. Any suggestions?

i had resonated pipes and that same y-pipe and the rasp was really strong..

150$ you can get some megan resonated test pipes, which has got to be cheaper that you can add them to the non-resonated pipes

So you're saying resonated pipes isn't going to fix the problem?

Where is the rasp coming from? Is there ANY way to get rid of it? :dunno:

There is a misonception that rasp is directly caused by test pipes.. it can be caused anywhere in the exhaust system. One possible reason for that particular y-pipe is the 3" exit. The exhaust is only 2.25-2.5" after the y-pipe, so there is a pipe diameter mismatch which is not good.

Does anyone make a midpipe with a 3" entrance that bolts up to the stock muffler?

Like I said, I love the tone, but the rasp and rattles aren't going to do it for me. :werd:

Don't do it. You'll lose out on HP and torque if you go resonated. Just my 2psi.

Resonated pipes should not affect performance they are the same open pipe but with perfortaed skin and a pack to muffle the sound.

Wow, that midpipe is perfect for what I need. I just don't think I'm willing to spend that much to get this problem fixed. If I have to I'll just remove the Y-pipe, but I don't want to have to result to that.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

Wow, thanks Gus! :yourock:

If I can't get it to stop on my own, I'll definitely be giving you a call. That pricing will work out a lot better. :thumbsup:

Thanks!
