So long story short, I want to remove my resonator.
I can't afford a catback system right now, and I have seen videos of the resonator removed and a flowmaster super 40 installed and it sounds great.
So yesterday I went on the hunt for some straight pipe to remove the reso. You can forget most auto stores (auto zone, oreilys etc). They only sell small pipes 12-18 inches, and because of how big the resonator is on this 5.7l, I need like over 3 feet of pipe.
So I checked a couple muffler shops. Some wont sell over counter at all, only installs. And one told me they would only sell 10ft at a time for $55. Finally I called NAPA auto parts and they only sell 10ft sections too, but they only charged $44. But NOBODY sold stainless steel at all.
Also I drove all the way to NAPA, only for the guy to ask me if it was 3 inch outer diameter or 3 inch inner diameter.
I don't know, all I know is its 3 inch pipe. So I drove home and wasted my time. Now im gonna get the calipers out and measure if its 3 inch outer or inner.
Has anyone else done a reso delete? Were you able to find stainless pipe?
