Default loud mouth 2 vs straight pipe

Exhaust setup:
longtubes/ORY LM2 catback.

l I just ripped off my resonator on a manhole so my question is will I have less rasp if i replace that section of the catback with a straight 3" pipe to the ORY? Or would it be less raspy to put the resonator back on?

No you need cats to get rid of the rasp.

Don't straight pipe it. That's ghetto.

ORY and straight pipes produces pretty much the worst sound an LS1 can make. Not good.

The LM is nothing but straight pipe. A LM sounds like a farm truck. I don't get it....

get the LM2 if you can. it has some buffles to it in hope to reduce a lil rasp. it will stay loud anyway.
