cherry bomb glasspack question

I recently built a 2.5 inch exhaust on my 2.0 vert turbo back with a straight thorugh muffler at the rear. It sound really mean and i love it but its way to loud. I got a cherry bomb resonator and noticed the spiral design in the tube.

Just want to know if anyone has tried one of these and what it does for performance. I dont have a tune but want to go stage one or two soon.

Also which way is the best way to install one ?

I put a glasspack on my old SPG when I was playing with exh setups. For me I hated it.... It was much louder then w/o it and gave me annoying resonances at certain rpm's. they also always seemed to not last LNG, would rattle on me after a few months to a year of use.

Much better just getting a good quality muffler be it magnaflow or something else

measure how much clearance you have around the long center section and get the largest round muffler that will fit. The closer you get to the turbo the more effective it will be at killing bad sounding frequencies.
Its a different car, but when I had my turbo'd S2000 I had a 3" turbo-back with just a canister at the end. It was pretty damn loud. But, sounded about perfect after I installed a 24" long resonator from vibrant.

Most of the 3" performance exhausts are built with a center resonator that's essentially a "cherry bomb" style straight-through perforated pipe surrounded by insulation.

It will quiet the sound at idle but you can hear it when you want to.
