Default Re: 3" straight pipe exhaust - DRTDEVL

Thanks for the feedback.

I think that the OEM system has one catalytic converter and a resonator right close to each other - when the parts were removed, my 2004 appeared to have 2 catalytic converters, but I'm not sure about that.

I'll leave my stock parts before the muffler intact. Based upon your experience, I'll likely look to source some sort of resonator rather than straight pipe. It will depend upon my mood and price of the part.
