You guys should all just go with a 2.5 inch sec 1 and ar25s, or E9x M resonators. Zero rasp and more torque even on stock cars

Follow up question. I've been tossing around the idea of having a shop make a section 2 for me, instead of purchasing the SS resonated section 2.
Could i go a y into 3" with AR30, then y back into my SS race?

No no no bad Idea. 3 inch is a no go. Dual 2.5s or stick to stock in section 2.

Default Re: AR20 or Status Gruppe Rasp Eliminator Pipe

Bare with me, but this custom option you guys are suggesting, would the entire pipe be custom with added AR25s? This might be a dumb question, but will the shop be able to make the necessary bolt holes for connection?

BTW, I got my refund on the SGT rasp pipe, so I saved 371 and a 6 month wait time

A section of the pipe without a resonator is cut out and in its place they weld in the aftermarket resonator.

Hmm, I still have on order the SGT rasp pipe as well. And this thread have me reconsidering that.

It would be nice to just have the stock one untouched with no resonators welded in. That way if/when I change my exhaust I can change back to stock easily. And I could sell the SGT rasp pipe and still get a chunk of the change back.

And at the point how much am I really saving.

AR20 is great, but take a look at Vibrant as well.

I understand the concept of having the AR20s added to the OE section 1. I got lost when it appeared that someone suggested, or sounded like to me they did, to have a custom section 1 made with 2 AR20s. Maybe I misunderstood.
