i recently put the stillen headers w/downpipe in my '04 spec v and now my car sounds like one of the loud high-pitched honda's :wtf: :balls: . i have an AEM ca intake and a magnaflow full catback exhaust on my car as well. i was wondering if anyone else had this problem and knows how to fix it or anyone with any information that can help me fix this sound. thanks.

how to fix it? get a big, big big resonator welded in the exhaust. The biggest one that can fit! That's about the only thing, short of taking the header off and putting the stocker back on ;)

sorry, I should have specified: a real resonator. those glasspack muffler things are worthless.

Magnaflow has some good resonators for a cheap price.

He's running str8pipe with no cats...it will sound better with a res but it is still going to probably sound like ass, or at least not as good as when you had the stock exhaust manifold on. I think the biggest res that fits is a 24 incher.

The precat acts like a resonator, the after cat works as one and the actual muffler on the car and resonator all act to quite the noise. I never saw your exhaust, but those canister type mufflers will all sound like a Honda. You need an oval OEM type muffler with flow through like a Borla or stromung type muffler. Resonators are needed, the longest you can find 24" may fit into the exhaust.
