Raspy exhaust fix

Recommended Posts

So I bought my n/a 33 without a sway bar.. went to install one and the aftermarket resonator was in the way so decided my easiest way around that is to get a staight pipe welded on to fit the sway bar.. once that was done the exhaust became extremely raspy or rattley driving around 3k-5k so decided to get a new resonator installed a little closer to the motor only by about 10 inches but I figured the exhaust would go back to how it was with the new resonator but hasn’t is there anything I’m missing here because I’m really sick of the way it sounds  what else can I do

You don't want a "resonator" in the middle of your exhaust.  You want a full size centre-offset oval muffler.  Well, you would if your exhaust followed the normal path.  You probably just want a centre-centre oval muffler.  But the point is, you need a muffler there.

I also suggest a muffler. Put it right at the end of the exhaust manifold. Garrett/Precision usually sell some pretty good mufflers.
