New Style Resonators.....

Guys, we have been getting alot of questions regarding this resonator. We made up some drawings today to answer the dimensions questions.

NEW Style Resonators / Mufflers Available...
We have sold over 100 Huspower Mufflers here on the Internet, and not one dissatisfied customer. The fact still remains that this beauty of a muffler is quite expensive, and does not fit everyone's program.

FTE Diesel now has a new style of resonator / muffler for the diesel enthusiast. This unit is available in 4" and 5" and is affordable. We have tested this unit on many trucks so far....
  • 2005 Dodge CR with 5" Straight Pipe
  • 1999 Ford 7.3 Liter 5" Straight Pipe
  • 2005 Ford 6.0 with 5" Straight Pipe
  • 2007 Ford 6.0 with 5" Straight Pipe to Single 7" Stack
  • 2001 Dodge 24V with 4" Straight To Stacks
  • 1997 Dodge 12V with 4" to single 7" Stack
  • 2003 Durasnack with 5" Straight Pipe
All test trucks had a drone at highway cruise speed, this was the target. The 2005 Dodge CR was a customer living in an apartment complex who has upset neighbors.

One of the biggest issues with resonators is that they commonly use a batting material to deaden sound, as exhaust heat flows through them that material breaks down over time and the effectiveness is reduced / lost.

Our new designed resonator is a solid piece, it uses a corkscrew design which passes half of the exhaust straight through and the other half around the screw (twice the distance). No degregation of performance over time since this piece is made of steel and no Batting or fluff is used. There is very little backpressure, no significant egt gain, and the noise cancellation properties are awesome. It is not the Hushpower muffler, but it is the next best thing.
  • Easy install, eliminates drone
  • Fits any system, 5" Diameter with 12" Body
  • Solid 14 Gauge Aluminized Construction
  • Inexpensive compared to other options
In the test trucks above, all customers gladly paid retail after the tests. The Apartment neighbors claimed that the idle and warm up period of said customers truck was greatly improved once this unit was installed. Performance and solid Tone were still totally available.

Bottom line, if your on a budget or too cool to install a muffler FTE Diesel is looking for cost effective solutions to improve your ownership experience of your Diesel Powered Truck.

Guys, these are Great for Straight Pipe Kits..... I'd be willing to do a test sale with someone that has an 03-04 6.0 liter straight pipe to get sound clip of before and after. see what this thing does to the F-16 sound

It can mount anywhere you want to install it... It is shorter than most mufflers, so it's not really gonna be a direct replacement.

This is an awesome piece if you have a straight pipe and the truck is a little too much in the cab.... we also package them with Stack kits regularly.

Cost.... I will send you a PM

Wanted to let you know that I installed a 17" resonator on my ride. The shipping was extremely fast and installation was very straight forward. I cut my muffler delete pipe and put it in its place. Still have the whistle and rumble but absolutely no drone while towing. Thanks for a great product!

Thanks for the post, this product is basically the rock solid solution to cab noise.... We are glad you have a smile on!

There are over 500 of these units sold and there has yet to be an unsatisfied customer I believe we would put this product up against any of the big name solutions out there, the value is huge.... Low Price with Big Results.
