a while ago my resonator lost its heat shield and a couple months ago it blew a hole in the top of it. but i was wondering whats the circumference of the resonator. im hoping a exhaust band will close up the gap till i get around to fixing it

Sorry if i'm an a**hole, but i tend to speak whats on my mind and the truth as i see it.. May not be right but it seamed right.
Its round & probably rotted all along the top, cant really hold it off much.
I did mine a couple months ago & the "way overpriced resonator" had a 2 bolt flange off the converter, the other end was a 2 1/4" pipe. I found the right flange somewhere, Summit or Rock Auto, that you could just weld to a pipe & be good. All my stuff was welded after the resonator, so I put everything past the cat on new after looking at the prices.
I did bite the bullet & get a new resonator from Advance, just to be lazy. The resonator is nothing more than a Cherry Bomb with the 2 bolt flange on it. The pipe from the resonator to the muffler was only like $20-$30 from Advance, add in a cheap Summit muffler & a cool exhaust tip & your all set. Ya really need the tip, my Summit brand Flowmaster sounded like a 40 series Flowmaster till I put a tip on it!
Here are the Advance part numbers. Prices are after using the discount codes. Buy them online & use the discount codes, cant really beat the prices-
Resonator- walker Part No 21398 -$54.88
pipe from resonator to muff- Walker Part No 55270 - $26.49
*the Walker resonator doesnt fit into the Walker pipe very good. I had to use the tailpipe expander on it & then weld it to make sure it didnt leak. Go figure!
My resonator went from a small exhaust leak to a full blown pontoon boat in about a week...once they go, they go fast! 04 Impala with a 3.4 here.
