please keep us updated on the sound of the exhaust....03-330Ci said:Well, since nobody had any answers, I just went ahead and took the thing out anyway. It cost $55 and about 30 minutes. My first impression was it was deeper on idle from outside the car. Inside the car, I can tell no difference in sound. As far as performance goes, I couldn't really tell anyting. If nothing else, I reduced the weight by about 15 lbs. Maybe I can get someone to drive it down the road while I listen.
As far as my questions on the resonator design. It is a dual chambered straight through design as far as I can tell. I'll post pics if anyone wants to see the thing cut out.
