$$$$$$Muffler Delete the hard way$$$$$$

Yesterday I went to the shop to delete both resonators, after he was done I didn't notice much of a difference, I wasn't impressed. So I came back to the web site did more research and realized that the sound I wanted came from a muffler delete, so I went back to the shop today, had both resonators put back on and deleted the muffler. 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.

Thanks for posting up my thread bud. It's amazing to me that so many people ask and thank me wen I post it... and yet, whenever I do post it, I get called a spammer or post wh*re or whatever... Lose lose unless someone does what you did... so

As for the drone, you get none with muffler delete as the resonators sit almost perfectly under the driver's and rear seat.. .so no loud BUMMMMMM just a nice exhaust note.

you should have done the delete AND left the resonators off.... best sound is minus 2nd res + muffler delete imo
