I replaced the resonator 5-6 years ago on the wifeys '03 Imp with a piece of straight pipe and it was a bit of a pain. I cut the flange off the back of the cat pipe ( 2 good milwakee sawsall blades couldn't get thru, I ended up using a grinder and cutoff wheel ). To put it together I used the same 2.25 size pipe and 2 stainless band clamps to hold it together ( like $50 in parts and an hour or so screwing around ).
The damn straight pipe rotted out in 2 years. Ended up I bought another resonator for $60, but because of the earlier hack job I had to cut the flange off the new resonator and re-use the band clamps.
Funny the rest of the exhaust incl muffler is still fine.
Knowing what I do now I should have just replaced the resonator for $ 60.00 + the cost of 4 flange bolts and a $ 1.50 exhaust ubolt for the back end and be done in under 30 mins.
