help: just removed my second catts with straight pipes and sounds terible!

hi guies, i just removed my second catts and sounds so bad, like really rattle tinny vibration sound, comming out of the back of the car (extreamly loud), i have, rr cattless downpipes, the rattle sound starts from 1.8k rpm till about 2.1k rmp when the car is under slight load. it sounds terrible!!!(it sounds like the muffler baffles are vibrating). i have jacked the car up and had a look, however i dont see anything rubbing on the exaust. the sound is so bad literally sounds like a honda civic with hole in exaust. the only time it sounds better is when i use DS mode as the car keeps the revs above 2k normally. i have tried golf tee mod and without. sounds a bit worse with the golf tee mod. please any help would be greatly appreciated! thank you!

you should have searched/asked before doing that. Especially with AT fully catless without any resonators it sounds like crap....

You're brave doing that setup without Vibrant resonators. Resonators will clean up that sound tremendously and you'll be very happy with the end result.

You need to weld Vibrant 1792 resonators instead of the cats, otherwise the sound is unbearably raspy. However once you put the resonators in, everything will come back to normal.
