Took the leap of faith and decided to get rid and the two resonators to add some more sound to this car! Still not fully convinced on an exhaust so this will have to do for now.

Even though everyone who has done this mod has said that the drone was non existent, I didn’t really fully believe it but I must say, for what it is, drone is insignificant.

Thanks for the video, @Loulerg.

I currently have the larger (mid) resonator deleted, and now you've got me considering deleting the other one as well.

You mentioned there's not much drone, but how loud is it inside the cabin?

To be frank, although there is more sound coming thought he cabin, it’s not really loud loud. My point of reference today was my wife lol, I took her out for the first time in the car today after the delete and her first reaction was “ wow I though it was going to be loud in here, I barely notice the change”‘ I’ll take that W lol. This week I’m going to put an interior video together so you can all get an idea of sound and drone inside the cabin .

How has it been with just one res delete?

It was great when I first had it done. Now that I've gotten used to it, I want a little more volume from the exhaust.

On my FK8, I had the Milltek non-resonated exhaust, which was a little too loud inside the cabin. I'm looking for something between what I have now (only the larger resonator deleted) and that Milltek exhaust, and it seems like deleting the other resonator might be the winner. Other than of course buying an aftermarket exhaust like the AWE Touring.

Saw this a few weeks ago it's a little more work but I love the look and the sound, at least what comes through the speakers...

Sounds pretty good! I like the gurgling aspect of it as opposed to the low hum stock provides.

Thanks for this post.. also considering getting the same done. Looking forward to hearing the interior video did you get a chance to shoot one? Would love to hear how it sounds in comfort mode (with valve closed) on the highway at 70mph cruise speed. Really don't want to try this and end up with a droney exhaust so I'm wondering what your experience is like.

Sound seems great otherwise! How much did the exhaust shop charge you for this and did they replace it with straight pipe T304 stainless steel?

I've been crazy busy with work and life so i haven't had a chance, but hopefully will soon.

I paid $150 bucks to my local shop, they cutoff each resonator individually and welded on a straight pipe.

Dual resonator delete is the way. I just did mine last week for $200 and now it actually sounds like a Type R.

I am running mine with the active valve so there is no drone at all. I also like that it keeps the stock tips which I prefer.

Ah yes, I'll say what everyone is thinking. This is how it should sound from the factory. 👍👍

Are you able to go back to a stock exhaust if you wanted?


Also, did the shop attach the new straight pipe to the exhaust hanger? Or did they just replace the resonators with a pipe and not connect it to the hanger?

Yes, but it will never look like it did when you first bought the car. This modification is not a bolt on. You're essentially cutting out sections of the exhaust piping and welding new pieces. To go back to stock, you would remove (cut out) the portion(s) of exhaust piping to weld back in the factory resonator(s).
