Best resonator to reduce rasp

So I recently put on cheap ebay pcds and jpipe and all I can say is RASP. my car sounds like crap... but the performance is nice. After the ebay pcds and jpipe I have the stock 3rd cat (which I plan on replacing with the resonator) and a 3in single outlet to an hks muffler. Seems like my best bet is the vibrant ultra quiet? I just want my deep tone back. Any input welcome! Even bashing for buying cheap pcds!

Bash! Bash! Bash!

All kidding aside, a large Magnaflow or 2 Ultra Quiet's should do the trick. I know we spoke via PM but I forget, is your HKS Muffler 3" as well?

Yes it is. And I just ordered an 18" magnaflow resonator. I hope it's big enough! Almost got the 24" but I still wanted similar volume just less rasp. Thanks.

Dope. Lmk if there still is rasp and I will sell you my Vibrant muffler! I think the HKS is just a straight through cannon, but the Vibrant will definitely deaden it more. Good luck!

I added a vibrant ultra quiet to my 3in straight pipe with no mufflers and it really helped the rasp. only some at lower rpms but not bad. i dont have pcds tho, I have the hfpc to help with the rasp.

sonnic, you have an ultra quiet resonator? 3"?

I just had a 3" mid pipe done and there's too much resonance for me. there's a 4" round 18" long resonator in there now.

I also have the 3" vibrant ultra quiet. I still have a lot of rasp on start up but I am catless. Aside from the startup/warmup I don't hear any rasp, just get highway drone...looking to squeeze something else in there to quiet it up a bit.

I bought Magnaflow 13743 18" I hope it's big enough. I'm starting to think I should've bought the 24" one but we'll see
