Way to Raspy any different Options?

i just installed hfc's and x pipe with 2 resonators to my meaitershaft gt and it is insanley loud and raspy. Does anyone know any options to make it more like a loud clean deep tone than a loud scary raspy sound? i was thinking adding more resonators but not sure if this will do any difference.

Thanks for any type of input!

More resonators will probably work. Depends on where you locate them and how large the resonators are too.

The resonators did you add them after or you bought the x pipe with four resonators?

No, gintani offers the extra resonators as a $200 option. Well worth it in my opinion.

OP already has 2 HFC's. I believe the Gintani is 4 resonators and catless?

Yes, that is correct. The OP's only options may be switching x-pipe brands, or having larger resonators installed.

Is it that bad? It sounding sick when you pulled out of M.A.C. A second set might mellow it out a bit. You could probably call up the guys at Fabspeed and see what they say. They've probably done that before.

yeah i called them up and they told me that resonators won't do much to the raspiness and that its the type of mufflers i have with the setup. He said Meistershaft is know to be very raspy with the hfc's and x pipe
