Will resonator delete make the exhaust sound noticeably louder after doing a FWI? It sounds awesome when u have the hammer down, but I'd like to know if removing the res will make it sound louder, at idle at least

I was just talking to my mechanic about the difference in sound between removing a muffler and removing a resonator..


IMO, I would remove a muffler with much less worry than if I were to remove the resonator.. The muffler sound is at the back of the car.. The resonator is usually right underneath the cabin and with that logic, I would always assume it's louder inside the car if you remove a res..

My favorite setup that I do is replace the resonator with a similar sized aftermarket muffler and run straight pipe out past the rear axle..

Yes, but the exhaust exit at the rear of the car, at the tailpipe which is where the noise is.

I always wondered about a res delete as well, but was unsure how it sounded on a 3.4. Confused

I see, is there a particular aftermarket muffler you recommend?

Me too, that's why I'm not 100% on what I'll do next

It sounded great on a 3.5 - and all 60 V6's sound pretty much the same.
The resonator does nothing but dampen the exhaust noise inside the cabin. If you like hearing it, get rid of it. It's not super loud, but it's much more noticeable, and I dig it.
When I get around to getting a new catback, there will be no resonator - just downpipe straight to the Flowmaster.

As to outside exhaust, here's my old setup from way back when: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zw7zDi-P8-M

Sounds good Five0two Very Happy I'll ponder taking off the resonator for a bit more while I take care of my other mods. I have 3 at hand right now, don't want to overload myself. I'll be looking for an exhaust that has a low rumble to it that is still audible, something about a deep exhaust like that makes the car sound mean, I want that Twisted Evil

You'll have a sound pretty much like what I had, but it can be moderated somewhat, depending on how much you want to spend.
But you'll never get a deep rumble out of a V6 Wink

Yeah, I know a v8 rumble is unobtainable, but anything close is good enough for me Laughing

^This.
The res delete will make the exhaust note louder inside the car.
The muff delete will make the exhaust note louder outside the car.

Unfortunately I do not.. I wish I did though..
I could make car alarms go off, during idle, while sitting next to them in a parking lot

Alright, thanks for the info. I'll start doing my research on what set up to get. Any suggestions as to what not to do or which brand to go for? Advice here may save me some time investigating

-Magnaflow
-Corsa
-SLP
-Borla
-Flowmaster
