Removing Front Resonator! Exhaust.

Hello, all. Just thought i would chime in after reading the "6.2 Exhaust" Thread. I first removed the coffee can resonator to hear what it would sound like and it was a nice throaty rumble but too tame for me. So i had a local shop remove the massive resonator and put in place a Y pipe. a few bends leads to the QTP cutout where the coffee can resonator was and then continues to stock muffler (will change later). This thing sounds awesome!!! I gained performance and in fact i can now spin the tires (found that out quickly). I had a tip pointed down but it tamed the sound in the cab and i actually prefer it echoing off the bed and underneath. If your worried about loss of performance or gas mileage, dont be. It was worth every penny. Here are some pics.

Of course it's loud, your dumping it out without even the muffler. Obviously you don't have any inspections.

I like the open exhaust but prefer it on my mustang or my friends vette.

I do have emissions inspection. From what i understand as long as you keep the cats then you are ok with emissions. When i tow i send it through the muffler. Its nice to have the ability to change when i need/want. I was just trying to provide some help/info for those contemplating doing it since it was brought up in a previous thread.

In most states an exhaust cut out is illegal and won't pass inspection. I just put my exhaust back to stock. It was flowmaster 4 inch y-pipe into a 4 inch dynomax race series and a turn down. Sounded great but it was deafening. On a long grade or towing you could forget about having a conversation in the cab. Like previously mentioned, I keep the loud exhaust systems on the toys.

Gotcha, in Illinois they do not even look under the truck. I will close it and send it through the stock muffler or whatever i put on it in the future.

I went with just a muffler delete and was pleased with the difference. Any videos for hearing pleasures. Also my milage dropped but I may be leaning into the pedal more too. What's your milage experiences?

My mileage increased especially on the freeway-but yes, i get on it a lot more from lights and stops so mileage does suffer overall

Are you still happy with the resonators deleted? Have you or others found it to be too loud at times?

The only time it may be too loud is at startup at 5:00 am! I have the cutout closed at that time however. If i didnt have the cutout and i left work early everyday you may have some angry neighbors. While driving and in cab it has a really nice growl. I have zero regrets!
