Resonator/Exhaust Question?

Ok.. now I know that I'm running 93 no matter what. So... Another question. I want to not only quiet down the exhaust on this thing a little but but SMOOTH out the sound. The previous owner has 2.5" pipe run from the headers to this N1 style muffler. No silencer so it is obnoxiously loud and the part i hate, it's splatty. So the big questions I am working up to.

Will putting a resonator on it at least smooth out the sound? Also, what's the difference between a resonator and a glasspack, because the look really close in appearance. I was thinking about putting a glasspack on it and seeing what it sounds like. Does the total length of the Resonator make a difference?? I've seen 18" resonators @ Vibrant that look pretty nice for $60. I was also eying this 28" glasspack at work for $25 my cost. Anyone ever heard a Prelude with a glasspack before or tried it??

dont use a glasspack.... you get what you pay for out of them and they sound like ****. thats why they are cheap. get an 18 or 22" resonator and put it in there. that should help out alot

So I will loose my deep tone from it? Or will it like Echo in the resonator and sound like a hallway?

Also, what kind of difference would I see between a Vibrant 18" bottle and a Vibrant Ultra-Quiet. Just wondering so when I can afford this stuff I know what to buy.

Re: Resonator/Exhaust Question?

no a resonator gets rid of the buzzy high pitched tones. and as for the difference between the two i cant tell ya. but if i had to guess the ultra-quiet probly has more baffling in it
