They're relatively common at exhaust/welding shops here in Texas. These guys are some of the best around. If any of you Dallas guys need welding or exhaust work, they are THE place to go. Davidson Muffler in McKinney. They were building this as well. Not my style honestly, but quite impressive.Never seen a bay outside before lol
It's used to prevent rain squeal typically, where the exhaust/resonator rubs against the driveshaft since they're so close together. Essentially the cold rain/snow touches the bottom of the exhaust and causes it to contract on the bottom, then bend upward and rub the driveshaft--causing a horrible squealing noise. Honestly, I don't find removing the resonator and putting in a straight pipe to be the best option since one can just shimmy the exhaust and move it a bit is all to fix the problem while preserving the stock sound. Plus it's a lot cheaper. It's what I did and I haven't had rain squeal for years now. I guess people prefer the way the exhaust sounds without the resonator.Is that all your having done is the removal of the resonator? Everything else stock? Just a straight pipe in its place? What are the benefits of this? Whats the sound difference?
