Cut rear resonator out sounds 100x better!!!

pickin up the truck this morning i went to lower it today and when i was done went to cut off the rear muffler. I just have it as a turn down set up for now right behind the axle since im doing a mandrel 3 inch exhaust this week on the truck.

THe sound is amazing. No drone but you can really hear it outside the truck. If anyone wants to keep the stock muffler id just say cut off the rear muffler/resonator or whatever and have your shop weld in a 3 inch pipe in its place and put your tip on at the end. Will sound much better and wont be a ache to your wifes ears at all

Dude, can you get an audio clip? I'm really interested If you get one, host it on www.yourfilehost.com

EDIT: Oh wait, it's the SS, thought you were talking about the I6

Nice, really want to hear a clip of an SS without the resonator, as that is a free way to get a nice growl to the stock exhaust (and I would definately do it if/when I get an SS )

Do you have the 4.2 or 5.3? I'm assuming 5.3 since your ID is NORCAL SS

Has any one done this to there 4.2? if what's it sound like?
