WOW! I was impressed it wasn't too loud but you knew I was coming here's a few pictures of the process. The moral of the story is, DO YOUR HOMEWORK and you won't have to spend twice as much as I did.
How could anyone possibly spend twice as much as you did?

Muffler delete will give you the best sound IMHO, not rice, definitly European. You won't gain any HP unless you have a turbo/supercharger but you will definitely have the sound of a fancy muffler replacement with much less $ spent. I did the muffler delete and left in the two resonators. Inside the cabin sound is very acceptable, no drone, and outside the car, anyone can tell you have a mod exhaust. Also no MPG increase, it's just for sound only. Just my 2 cents. Chas.

Has someone deleted the second resonator only? I wonder how would that sound in and out the car. I dont want any cabin drone or loud ouside noise.

Just do a muffler delete. Resonator deletes with the muffler still place is a little silly if you ask me

the guy that owns the muffler shop must own a fishing boat too, looks like he used shark hooks for the hangars
