      my set up is a dual outlet manifold and DP, catco hi flow cat, & one of those those magnaflow 4" round mufflers. its not terribly loud, but after almost 2 years of it, its not the quietest.
      well see what the glass pack will do.

      My friend has only a cherrybomb on his MkI. It sounds good. It'll quiet it down, and give you a nice deep tone.

      i'm rocking a thrush glass pack. basically a cherry bomb. i don't have any "concrete" because i installed the whole system at once. it's loud when you are on it, but very manageable when not. i've never been pulled over.
      also it's a g60 with header, glass pack, and a supersprint mk1 muffler. all 2.5" [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      just get some reducing pieces and stick them in the tail pipe "backwards" so the tail pipe looks the same but the pipe inside is actually smaller diameter...iv seen track cars use a similar "silencer" when they were off the track,
      you really don't have to fix it just make it quiet enough for the reinspection
      i have also heard a story of an RX-3 that had exhuast on the roof, this was a rally car in th 70's btw, for tech inspection they would pack fiberglass inulation in there and it would be quiet enough to be 'legal' but after a few stages it would blow all the fiberglass out and get loud again...if you ever heard a rotary that is totally ported you would know that you car is nowhere near loud

      These are good but I dont like that the endcaps are square to the rest of the body, they dont slide over speed bumps very well on the lowish ones

      the cherrybomb (glasspack) DOES work as a resonator. its made a world of difference.... ill have to get a sound clip of it here soon.

      also i noticed my cat is shot, its gutted itself over the past year or so, i guess thats next on the fix list

      fix it with a crow bar down it or a sawzall on the front of it and the rear. replace with chosen resonator/silencer/muffler.

      1) Paint Cherry Bomb with hi-temp black.
      2) Add 3.5" Autotech tip.
      3) Voilà! Ersatz panzerfaust!

      I've had cherry bombs on my car for the last 2-3 years works fine as a resonator with a reasonable muffler. I use a cherry bomb SONIC turbo muffler with it. The sonic is a square traditional looking free flow unit. Good note and feels good. 2 1/4 all around

      should bring down the dB's and have a good sound.

      If your cat is blown, the above resonator would make a better test pipe, then using a straight pipe, since it would help deepen the tone, and kinda looks like a race cat. I have a resonated test pipe, that looks just like that, but it's a regular resonator, on my '84 Rabbit GTI, and it recently passed the visual check.
      Also the Supersprint resonator for the 16V Scirocco header looks just like an A2 cat, but the flange is 2 bolt, instead of 3 bolt.
      Resonated test pipe Vs. straight pipe:
