im currently running stock exhaust on my 95 lx bird aside from borla mufflers....this thursday im planning on removing the 3rd cat and resonator and welding in custom Y pipe into a 2 1/2" straight pipe back to the mufflers. Cant do true duals at this time although i would sort of like to. My question is, do you guys think it will be worth doing (sound increase wise) or can i do more to improve the sound without going to true duals...?

works on my end, have to wait bout 15-20 secs. for it to load. sounds pretty darn good. i went outside last night and hacked my 3rd cat off and put the 2 glasspacks that were in the back on there. sounds alright but is loud as he** on the inside:eek:

resonator

Just wondering...do ya'll have smog tests there? I was wondering what the purpose of the resonator...just for noise (quiet) or does it have any thing to do with pollution control..like the cats? Would be a lot cheaper to just replace the cats and ditch the midlle ...resonator. We get tested hear and it passed but they have to be getting clogged up I'm sure (90K)

when i took off the resonator i used a plasma cutter to see whats inside, just for fun. it was really just like a silencer for a gun, inside of a can basically. It only baffles, doesnt help with smog, as far as i know


and yes we have some of the most strict emission laws out here
