Just got around to doing this and took some pictures too!
Some things you will need: delete pipe, various size plyers, jack, jack stands, light


1. Jack up the car and apply jack stands.

2. Proceeding to locate the resonator..

5. Almost there..

6. BAM! stock resonator

7. This is where you will need some plyers to unscrew the cap to loosen the hose clamps. Various size wrenches will help.

8. Loosen the hose clamp closest to the block and remove the hose off the inlet.

11. Operating floor with new pipe to be replaced.

12. Proceed to loosen all the hose clamps and separate.

13. Inside resonator pipes (delete - top, stock - bottom)

14. Attach the hose clamps onto the hose ends but only snug them where they can still freely move. Have ready the hose end from the block and delete pipe freely snug together to install. I decided to replace my hose clamps with the screw type to make the install/removal much easier. I did leave the block end hose clamp alone as it was built into the rubber.

15. Apply block end hose and delete pipe with hose clamps onto the car but don't tighten anything just yet. The idea is to get it all back on the car with all hoses seated firmly, delete pipe centered, and hose clamps positioned in their right spots.

16. Start from the block and checking that hoses are seated and things are centered, start to tighten the clamps in order from block to the opposite end.

Great, awesome, but in a few weeks the thread will be useless, because you put all pics on photobucket and it takes only one small change in your account, not to mention account deletion, to see "file does not exist" instead of pics.

Upload them to forum server if you want this thread to serve its purpose in future.

Not that I am aware of. Maybe it changes with your "seniority".
I have 76 files stored as attachments and nothing stops me from adding more. If you see my threads - each picture is stored here, on the forum.

I bet there might be a limit... and I also believe there is a limit of pictures within the post. I think. At least some fora do have it.

Thanks man. Most folks would not care...
Future users will be grateful.

Besides, some - I am included - cannot see pics from most if not all online host services at work. Hence, I could not see anything but text initially. Finally, at home I got the full view.

You can always Imgur or Google Photo's to directly host too... On topic, I just did this myself and used the directions online from 6th, but this would have been better. :)
