Well I just installed my T28 with a full 3" from the turbo back.
I find it way too loud, is this normal for a full 3"? An the noise is coming more from the engine area than out the tailpipe. I'm not sure what kind of downpipe it is(bought it used) but I have an Apexi Dunk catback

Mine is way to loud too, it's full 3" turbo back with O2 elim. It is so loud that if I am on the Highway listening to a CD, the CD will skip every now and then. I just ordered a SS 3" Resonator, that should take care of my problem.

you have a VRS downpipe with 02 eliminator the main reson why it is so loud is because it flows sooo much better ( 3 full inches) you can either have performance (which is cool) or a silent car tha tdoesnt breathe well (not cool) but he resonator will help you have performance and a sleek soounding high tuned machine

thanx, good to know. an where should the resonator go really, like on what part of the exhaust?

I believe it should go after the Cat. Converter/Test Pipe, this is similar to the stock exhaust system. Attached is a pic of a cat back exhaust with resonator.
