Wink GT500 Mufflers and Resonator Delete

I just had my GT500 mufflers installed and had the resonators deleted...I was not expecting the sound that I received at all! I have the stock H-pipe on the car and was going to buy an X-pipe to make it raspier but there is absolutely no need!! I swear I smile every time I start it up! Can't believe such a simple mod could open the car up sooo much! If you are on the fence about buying a different axle back or worried about spending a lot of money on an exhaust, you will not be disappointed with this set up AT ALL! Hope to have a video up soon!

Hell yeah! It really does sound great, doesn't it! I was going to try and make a few videos after Christmas. Rumor has it the old big-guy is putting a GoPro under the tree this year...

I'm considering some kind of axle back, with GT500's leading the pack. With the resonators deleted, how bad is the drone? That would be a concern for me on the highway (if it's an issue at all).

Sounds great I had that setup but it eventually wasn't loud enough so I went a different route.

Blower and stuff

No drone at all. A day after installing I went for a little road trip and it was like having stock exhaust cruising at 65-75 MPH. Going through 1st, 2nd, 3rd and a little bit in 4th is where you will notice the huge sound difference! It's raining here right now so I hope to have a video up after the storm

I have this same exact setup. Prior to deploying putting her away while I am gone I took trip from NC to Fl and back and never had any drone. Absolutely zero! In my opinion you can't go wrong with this setup. I started with American Thunders and the drone was terrible so I quickly switched to the GT500's. Never looked back after the switch.

Does anyone in the Detroit area know a good shop to get my resonators cut out? I have been wanting to do this for a while.

These guys aren't having the cats cut out they are having the resonators deleted. The cats are still on the car.
