There is only one resonator and it's in the middle. Do not remove the front muffler, it'll drone like hell.
Not sure if removing the resonator will give you what you're looking for, but i'm sure someone who's done it will chime in.

There are a couple of videos on youtube with that specific magnaflow exhaust. Im sure you'll find a couple searching on there.

Should've done the kpeng exhaust. Cheaper, louder, deeper. Yes to deleting the "small" resonators.

I figured "kpeng exhaust" would be mysterious enough for the class of '12 to warrant a real search where OP might learn something instead of asking basic questions covered a million times.

This forum seems to rotate through know-it-all a-holes that reach some kind of general forum demigod status.

I think what the op wants to hear is:
Remove the second resonator(the small one), plus stock muffler
Replace it with his magnaflow? Correct?
And run the exhaust out.

dont rush and start hacking the resonators - the 14815 could sound very different than videos on youtube. Also, do you have a stick or auto? If you have an auto - that drone is gonna suck! so slap it on and wait and see if you like it or not.
