View Full Version : Cats & Resonator ?

07-16-2002, 01:15 AM
I have a stock 90 SC 5-Speed. I am looking at two magna flow resonators, a 14" and a 18", does anybody know what difference there is between these two ? (besides that fact that one is 14 and the other is 18, hehehe). What high flow cats would you recommend, brand & model info would be nice.
I want the car as quiet as possible.. I am gonna modify the car little by little, but i don't want a noisy exhaust system, i want it to purrr.. Thanks guys..:p :p

The longer(18") the resonator is going to make your car more quiet and the 14" more louder. So if you want it to be silent go for the 18" resonator and don't forget the mufflers.... Check

I have the 14" Magnaflow, 2x2.5 1x3 and it is very quiet. The reason I used this is that I wanted to maintain the ball and socket joint behind the resonator for easy exhaust removal. I think the 18 inch one leaves little room for that kind of joint.

Hey Les Borda

I was looking at the MagnaFlow website and i found a resonator. its a (5x x8) oval style, single 3", dual 2.5"
Part # 14221 would this be the best option ??? you have a point i would still like to be able to remove the exhaust easily if i needed to..
