Question 328i owners. Do I install the 1792 resonator in place of the muffler?

I plan on doing a muffler delete but I also want to install the 1792 resonator.

When I have the muffler shop remove the muffler do I ask them to weld the 1792 resonator in its place? If not, where is the best place to have the resonator welded? Fwiw, I'm in Texas.

Thanks for any feedback!

If you have a completely stock exhaust you already have a resonator. The Vibrant bottle resonators are typically used to replace the secondary catalytic converters when doing a cat delete.

Also, if you are going to use the Vibrant resonators, you want the 1790 (2.25" inlet and outlet) and not the 1792 (2.50" inlet and outlet). The 335i guys use the 1792 because they have a larger diameter exhaust as compared to the N/A guys.
