Resonator

Any one ever removed the resonator on the intake tube? Does it allow any more turbo whistle?

I would doubt you will get a pleasant noise off that side of the turbo.
You could try it and see how many error codes you get.
Then let us know what it sounded like.

C12H24 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
It's a Helmholtz resonator. It addresses a specific resonance frequency. If you're not familiar with Helmholtz resonance, you can blow across the top of a bottle to make it hum. No air is going into or out of the bottle. The same thing is happening to that resonator in the intake pipe, only it is there to create an opposing resonance to counter noise in the intake pipe. Removing it only makes the intake noisy. You won't hear the turbo, you won't improve performance. You'll just have more intake noise. It also won't throw any codes since there are no sensors monitoring it.
