Hey Folks, I have a move happening and I have a sealed 5-gallon can of Renegade Pro 1 Methanol that I cannot take with me. Is anyone near the Orlando area interested?

I have a 3" exhaust to a dual 2.5" split.  I have a 3" magnaflow cat and the Magnaflow 12641 resonator (3" in/out, 36: length) and stock 04 GTP mufflers.  I was toying with the idea of deleting to two mufflers.  Would that be obnoxiously loud?  Or would the cat and resonator make it sound ok?

would be very loud, theres a vid on yt of a gtp set up like that, not a 3 inch, so that could only be worse sounding.

Stick with the mufflers.  I've heard a lot of combinations on these cars. 2.5, 3, cat/no cat, res/no res, duals, stock mufflers, no mufflers.  You get the idea.  They seem to never have that muscle car sound.

Just a thought.  I was thinking I would give it a try since it would be cheap to just have them cut out.  Some of the youtube videos make them sound nice at idle, but like crap when they drive by or rev it up.  I was also thinking some glasspacks in the back, but that would probably sound almost as bad huh?

I would not make any exhaust decisions based on YT vids, they sound quite different in real life. I say go for it man, trial and error. Make sure you keep the mufflers though.

Between two of the Regals I owned I had many different exhaust setups so why not try and pick something that sounds good to YOU. I personally had best results with biggest 3" Magnaflow resonator I could fit, no cat and Dynomax VT muffler. Since I've replaced the single 3" Dynomax with dual 2.25" Hooker Max Flows with the same configuration and I absolutely love it. VERY deep sound, I might consider a high flow cat to quiet it down some more to keep the wife happy :icon-lol:

Wish I had a more detailed clip of my 03GS with the electric cutout idle/open/closed etc.... but here's what it sounds like with Ebay OBX headers, 3"DP, Straightpipe, resonator, WOT run at the track....I'm @ 4:07  HTH =3
