exhaust louder if i remove resonator?

sup guys...i was wondering, if i had the resonator removed from my exhaust, how much louder would it get?? would the thermal still sound nice and deep but louder, or will it sound ricey loud?? i am still debating whether i want to do this or not. anyone know how much it costs?? like less than $100 from like meineke or something??

yes it will make your exhaust louder. I have a custom 2" catback system on my gxe with a header and cai. when i removed my exhaust resonator so i could weld on my o2 sensor bungs it made it ricey loud. I hate it. I will get it fixed one day.

i would steer away from doing that, definately if you want to get a header in the future.

yes it is. i have a magnaflow exhaust,so its not too loud without the res. i dont recommed it though. its give a deep tone. but in nt way can u say its too loud, well aleast not for me. from outside, its badass. if u have muffler thats known to be a quiet muffler like magnaflow then do for it,but only with u dont have headers

I bought my stromung catback with 22-24 inch resonator, and I kid you not, the CAI is louder than my exhaust is. I'm well aware when I get my header, it'll bump it up a tad, but for now.. I like it.. lowkey keeps everything cool.

the resonator helps give you that deep tone. why would you want to remove it? you dont want an annoying car like a honda, do ya?

Trust us...I have the AEBS header and Mossy exhaust with NO resonator. It sounds like a honda
But, it sure doesn't move like one

I've got a custom 2.25" catback exhaust without a resonator, now it sounds really sweet, not ricey. It is loud, but has a very deep tone. But I am going to get a resonator put on because it attracts way too much attention from the cops. Its great for the track, but for streetdriving its too loud, unless you like getting harassed the police.

hehe, its a resonator, it does what it says, resonates sound. If you want a high flow one get a magnaflow.

I did'nt know the resonator was really helping noise reduction... In fact, some cars come stock with NO RESONATOR at all. I guess this is how the hole exhaust is tuned from the factory...
