3rd cat & resonator delete feedback
« on: September 01, 2019, 07:10:07 PM »
So I had a bright idea to order a replacement Xpipe from one of the major catback manufacturers to bolt in a resonator & 3rd cat delete.

Looking for feedback on tone, volume and rasp to go along with my current SW catted downpipes and stock mufflers on deleting these 2?

The Xpipe will make it louder and it will probably get a little rasp but I think it will sound less raspy with your mufflers than if it were straight piped. Overall I think you'll find a little bit of rasp easy to live with.

I believe I have mostly done what your asking about to my '17 Explorer Sport.
From stock down pipes, exhaust goes into a 2.5" magnaflow X-pipe, then out into two straight 2.5" pipes back into twin Magnaflow hiflow mufflers (this section is Magnaflow's 2.5 explorer's setup.)
Sounds ok but dont expect a v8 sound. It's not loud but people will recognize you have an exhaust immediately.  You can hear the turbo's spooling out the exhaust which is cool.
