Would I gain anything by removing the resonator. Talking performance gains. Im getting ready to get a custom tune and efans and trying to decide if I should remove it before my tune

thanks

You will gain in the noise area, not real performance gain, unless I am totally off.

The trucks I have done so far on the dyno haven't shown much of a noticeable improvement with a catback. I have heard of guys reporting gains with a cutout.

hey Alvin,

Im actually gonna call you in next day or so to schedule an appointment. Im located in south charlotte so just need to get a date / time from you. Im wanting efans and tune, dont care about dyno numbers but if thats included cool. Outside the magnaflow catback do you recommend any other quick exhaust changes before I come see you ? Have you heard the magnaflow catback without resonators, how does it sound ?

go ahead and put my name on one of them efans :)

I would go ahead an get a 160 thermostat and have it installed. Other than that a intake can definately help.

k, i'll order the 160 thermastat. Ive also already installed the K&N cai. I'll help with the efan install. Just dont want any downtime so I was wanting to bring it to you and get it all done.

Do you have any openings this weekend or after wednesday in the afternoon ? How long you think this stuff will take ?

get a cutout and leave the stock exhaust on,i changed out to the magnaflow catback which is a little deeper than stock but it also cost $500 that i probably would not spend again if i had to do it all over,but then again i like it somewhat quiet when driving,plus the cutout does give you extra power i dont know how much on the dyno yet but at the track atleast .2 for me quicker

Thanks, Ive already got the magnaflow catback with res installed. Im just trying to decide if I should remove the resonator and replace it with straight pipe.
