Can combining resonators of different lengths and outer diameter affect the exhaust system negatively? To my understanding, people generally use two of the same resonators if space permits. I have a spare Magnaflow muffler (14" length, smaller OD, I don't remember) that I'd like to pair with my Vibrant resonator (18" length, 4" OD).

tl;dr Running 2.25" catback system with 18" length and 4" OD Vibrant resonator. I want to add a 12-14" length magnaflow muffler to help with the highway drone. Are there any negatives to using different sizing resonators?

Maybe you should have done some reading. :surprise:
At this point you don't have anything to lose.
