Does removing the resonator and replacing it with a glassback just make the exaust louder or does it make it sound better too? does anyone have any audio/video clips of tauruses with this mod done? i just dont wanna chop my exaust apart and sound like i have a hole in my muffler

I wouldnt replace it with a glasspack. I would run straight piping here and then dual Flowmasters in the rear. It sounds deep and mellow. I like it.

He means to make it a 2-1-2 exhaust for looks.

Replacing the resonator with a glasspack will not make it noticeably louder. The resonators Ford uses are just like glasspacks, but with steel wool for durability. They both function primarily the same as far as noise reduction and tone quality are concerned.

To get the dual exhaust, you can go to a junkyard and get the y-pipe off a 96-98 Duratec, with the mufflers attached. Weld that sucker on, and you've got dual exhaust. Definitely looks and sounds badass!
