Default Turbo Exhaust, Final questions!

I bought the Enthuza exhaust. But it only goes from the cat back. Well, I have no cat. So should I use a Reasonator in place of the cat, or just a test pipe. If the reasonator doesn't quieten the exhaust much, I'll save the money.

Anyone with experiance with the 3" enthuza with just a test pipe and no reasonator?

I used to work in an exhaust shop. (Not a pro with the enthuza though)

But usually when taking out a cat you replace it with a resonator, to provide a small amount of back pressure to remedy those ugly sounding pops and barks that resonate under decel.

I would use a resonator myself. Probably wont lower the sound by much, but a bit. No personal experiance though.

Yeh they don't quieten things down much... I'd say around 10-15% on about a 12" resonator.

BEGi SGDP, Enthuza 3" testpipe, Enthuza 3" catback with an Ansa Silverline muffler.

I'll admit that it's a little boomy and loud for a true DD, but for a fun sports car or if you don't mind a loud-ish exhaust, it's fantastic. There is no rasp at all.

Does anyone know the deminsions of the test pipe from flange to flange.
My enthuza supposed to be a catback. And I need to order a glasspack to make a quieter test pipe.
