One way... the way i did mine (i do not recommend)
Remove headlight
Tape off bumper around headlight
Remove the crappiest little plug/pushpin/screw thing.
Cut the big ass thing into 4 pieces and remove them
Reinstall headlight (make sure its plugged in. youll be pissed if it wasnt)
Remove tape
Rev engine and grin.

Other way:
This seemed like more preliminary work but is probably easier to actually remove the resonator.

The reason i dont really recommend is because its tough to do all the work through the headlight housing. its a pretty small space to have one hand holding the res. and the other cutting. definitely DO recommend a dremel!! i had tried everything!!! i ended up using a pair of hedge clippers/small branch cutters and that was easy but alot of damage to the bumper if you dont tape it up good to protect it.. As for a differance i did notice an increase in sound. it was louder for sure. not so much performance wise. but i mean, im sure it helps, its more air. Hope this helps out.

I ended up going through the wheel well for mine, took longer to take off all the clips than it did to actually remove the thing! Took me maybe 30-45 min from start to finish

I removed the res and did the full crabs with fpu - I have no had any codes thrown at all

It could be one, the other or both but I did notice a little mpg increase, small but still an improvement in acceleration and the main reason - soooounds so much better ( much deeper, throaty of a growl )

i'm 6'2" so there was no way my hands were going to fit into those small spots haha - some have said they took off 3 or 4 pins to get in there, I took out like 14 haha - BUT - I had more than enough room to fit in there and get it out without any damage. Let us know!

I went through the wheel well and used the car jack that was with the car and it took between 40-50 minutes. Really easy mod to do and sound is a little deeper not much. Haven't really drove with it yet so not sure on gas mileage or anything but I feel better taking it out. Pointless to keep it in. Thanks for all the info guys!
