Resonator Delete?

Thinking about deleting my resonator and replacing it with straight pipes. This is going to be temporary until i get my x-pipe. Couple of questions i got for you guys:


1. Will I lose tq/hp?

2. If so by how much approximately?

3. Will it sound deeper or raspier?

Deleting resonator would not lead to any power gain that the buttometer would register.

And I always say, if you didnt feel it, it never happened.

Replacing section 1 with straight pipes is not a big deal.

A good exhaust shop should be to either delete the cats from your stock pipes or mould a set of straight pipes for you.

I believe the first option would be the most cost effective.

Will an action like this cause any drone in the cabin? Point is that I'ev changed to Eisenmann Sports but I'm slightly disappointed (too little sound) and consider X-pipe/removing resonator.
