From outside, I bet there is--as others have stated--but for me it was to achieve a cleaner profile.
Sparky said:I wonder if the bend in the pipe vs a straight pipe like some people use makes any difference in drone (or lack of)?
I still need to get rid of mine, just haven't gotten around to it.
YOUNG said:I have also read that there is a drone at speeds of about 50-60 mph.. that would be the only thing that i wouldnt like.
EDIT: nevermind, i guess we posted at the same time.
SBUBandit said:I want to cut mine off, but am a little concerned of the drone. I find even with the stock exhaust, there is an annoying drove at about 55mph. Its fine at 60, but at 55 it seems the overdrive wants to keep the RPM too low and just hums.
GR8SLT said:I replaced the resonator with a straight tailpipe but the drone was really annoying at cruising speed on the highway so I put this resonator in front of the stainless tail. There is still a drone but at my normal cruising speed it isn't too bad.
Tarnished said:No real need to change out the stock muffler; they are amazingly free-flowing and straight through from the factory. With the added bonus of good sound deadening. A new muffler does nothing for us in terms of performance increases.
Cutting the stock resonator off however, is a really nice aesthetic enhancement.. and for most, doesn't increase any drone or noise levels enough to be noticeable.
Cut the resonator off.. but leave the stock muffler. Most of the people I know with droning problems used an aftermarket muffler, (usually those crazy V8 performance mufflers) along with a resonator delete.
