i am NOT FAT and i am NOT a 'Little Piggy'!!! i'm just 'Big Boned' therefore, in the words of that famous American, Eric Cartman, i say to you;

"Screw you guys, I'm going HOME!"

just a thought.......
Removal of a resonator typically has minimal effect on sound "volume". Removing the resonator typically changes the tone (not necessarily volume) and also removes the smoothness of the note. It typically turns raspy, and barks more on throttle off.

Replacing the resonator with a muffler, though, would not be something I would recommend myself, that is unless you want the exhaust quieter. A muffler will reduce volume, and will increase restriction more so than a resonator.

I'd have a shop cut the resonator out cleanly, and temp-bolt a pipe in there. If you don't like it, have them weld the resonator back in place. Should be no more than a $50-$75 job.

What would be ideal is for someone to post a sound clip who has done it.

As for the resonator I am just going to cut it out and Y it past the axel.
Should have it done by mid December.

I looked at the GTP exhaust, which is strange. I would remove the muffler and pipe up to the axle. I would install a 'Y' pipe and additional piping(2.5" diameter) running into dual glasspack mufflers with tips. That should give the car a mean tone and a little better flow.

But there is no room to do that under there....I think the engineers never thought about exhaust.

I took my resonator off...

I have an 06 GTP with the 3.9 took the resonator off went to advance got some flex 2.5 piping put it in place of the resonator and it sounds good .... when driving the car i really cant hear it since the noise is behind the car plus over the music.... but when i rev... its a good improvement from stock that is cheap...

This is exactly what I am thinking about doing, because somehow my resinator popped from the inside and I have a hole in it. so I wanna cut it off and clamp a piece of exhaust pipe. I heard it will give the car a nice tone, so I wanna try it. anyone know offhand what the diameter of the pipe is and what clamps to use? its a 2005 V6 Sedan.. not GT, just V6. thanks

oh one more thing.. what if you put a performance muffler in place of the resinator, and then got rid of the muffler near the ass end? someone suggested that to me today when I mentioned I wanted dual exhaust. they said to do that, then slap a Y pipe where the muffler currently is, cut out the facia and add tips. any opinion on all that?

Here is a clip of how the exhaust sounds, I had the resonator removed and the stock muffler was replaced with a Flowmaster! It's not the best sounding clip being that I recorded it with my phone! Let me know what u think!!!
