x pipes are not for backpressure, they are to smooth out the exhaust flow so your car doesn't sound like two civics with fart pipes, without being as restrictive as an H pipe.mid-knight_goat said:best thing to do is get and x-pipe to still generate some backpressure, for
it is needed for high rpm performance unless you tune it other wise.
Here's the inside of the resonator. The pipes have perferated holes to equalize the pressure.huskerGTO said:took mine off, replaced it with a x-pipe...I didn't like it so I put the resonator back on. It adds a deeper tone and has straight thru pipes in it. just an fyi! :cheers
I read an article about the resonator on a web site and the article stated that's what the resonator is for, the unique soundLally said:Here is some info for you... great reading by a well known Expert, David Vizard.
You can take the resonator out if you wish, but it is my belief that the resonator is what gives the 05/06 GTO its unique sound. JMHO....
