Question Replacing front resonator with something else

my exhaust system is a 2.5" with a magnaflow mufller single in / dual out

like this:

i recently remove the front resonator on my Intrepid 2.7L because it was broken and i put a homemade "Y" pipe but now the sound is awfull... IMO (before sound was very deep and growly, now it sound more like ricers...) so i was asking myself if i put back an original Dodge Intrepid front resonator or if i put something else (another magnaflow or a glasspack, etc...)... ?

I have the same setup that you have (Can't find right Muffler)

thought about getting rid of the resonator but kept it OEM instead, it sounds very nice deep rumble and doesn't attract unwanted attention (noise laws in Ontario). I would say for cost go with OEM but aftermarket would work also.

Yep. My homemade "Y" was the exact same way. Still did it later when I tried to go back to a single exhaust and put my Y in after a H pipe. I ended up bending my H and made a smoother, better Y. Still didn't do a thing. There's a weird resonance in the exhaust where both sides come together.

A 2.5" Magnaflow oval glass pack took care of it nicely. Their glass packs are straight through perforated tubes so they flow nicely. My car has that with a Flowmaster 40 in the very back. I have a nice deep grumble at lower rpm and more of a v8 sound when I step into it. And NO MORE RASP!

I'd recommend the Magnaflow right after a good Y
