That is the reason. One of the Ford guys explained the reasoning on Jay Leno's show back when it was still on Youtube. Same reason the symposer exists. Anyway, I had the resonator delete and it still wasn't enough for me. Just installed the MBRP XP series exhaust though and I'm not sure how I feel about it.Did this a couple months ago... again like everyone has said that's done it THIS is what it should sound like from the factory... I think the problem as to why these cars are so quiet is that its the same car sold worldwide and so they had to comply with everyone's policies for decibel levels. I could be wrong about that though.. Either way awesome to hear you're enjoying it! If you still have a resonator I recommend deleting it as this will cover that very well and won't be too bassy.
Awesome, good to hear. I have the same plan hopefully soon with a catted downpipe, resonator delete/change, and crackle-pop.Did mine last year and haven't looked back. It's even more perfect with the Stratified crackle-pop tune. People say there's no drone and this is mostly true. But you can hear it humm in those rpm's where louder exhausts would drone, but it's totally bearable. What's really bad though is I want to drive with my windows open all the time so I can hear it!
I haven't removed it, but it stopped working before the delete. I also had it disabled as part of the Stratified tune just to make sure.Awesome, good to hear. I have the same plan hopefully soon with a catted downpipe, resonator delete/change, and crackle-pop.
Did you leave the sound symposer there? Or remove it? I know that people with full exhausts usually delete that because it's too much.
its a straight through piece that helps to muffle sound a bit, but not restrict flow. If you cut it open its either going to have some mesh holes or a bit a fiber packing inside to absorb sound...id be curious to see, after my delete i might just toss it on the band saw at work and cut it in half.What isn't that the muffler?
