Is it a aftermarket catback by any chance?

I had 2 magnaflow catbacks now and had that same noise and turns out it was the resonator that broke both times.

I figured out where the noise is coming from. It is where the flexable joint at the top of the cat bolts onto the headers at first i thought oh my bolts vibrated loose then i cooled down the pipe to tighten them and i turned my car on put my hand down there and the exhaust was leaking out of the flexable part itself.... new CAT TIME!!!! that part cannot be replaced so i ordered an XTC 2.5" high flow cat from cobalt-addiction.com $279 whit shipping bolts right on no welding (A stock cat from gm is like $500for the supercharged and $400 for the NA cobalts)
