Hey guys, i got a fairly stock 3.0 with CAI extractors n a 2.5" exhaust with the stock mufflers, im thinking of changing the rear with a hotdog or there abouts, and i also have a new hiflo cat at home, if i were to put the cat and hotdog on at the same time, would i have issues with lost back pressure? or should i be right.
cause im also getting abou a 68 or 70mm throttle body soon which will mean more flow.
cheers

The rear 'muffler' is not a muffler. it's a resonator. you don't need to have it by law. i have mine though just to stop the 'drone' of the exhaust while doing highway runs. it also helps to keep a bit of back pressure. i'd change the muffler to a straight through muffler cos the stock ones stagger in the flow, ie the in and out of the muffler is not inline. Is the exhaust mandrel bent?

yeah all the pipes are mandrel bent, im considering either taking off the rear resonator completely or having a hotdog there to give it a bit of sound and reduce some drone aswell... does anyone know roughly how much a hotdog resonator is? aswell as another straight through muffler to replace the centre one?
