Resonator delete worth it?

I am running Fabspeed sportcat and stock muffler which sounds really good, not sure if the resonator delete at this point would change the overall volume enough to be worth it or not? Can anyone attest to this arrangement?

Yes, I have a Dinan res delete with FB sport cat free flow exhaust and love the sound. Not too loud cruising and sounds great when you get on it. There is a diff—deeper tone.

Is there any drone at highway cruising speeds?

A resonators sole purpose is to reduce or eliminate drone. I'm certain that it will increase but how much, I have no idea. Each driver will have their own level of tolerance. There's no HP gain by eliminating it either.

I have Fi dp with Dinan resonator delete and muffler and it's pretty loud.

If you are thinking of an exhaust down the line I would skip it as most exhausts will replace it.

What you need is responses from guys that have just done the res delete, not that plus something else. As stated before, the resonator isn't for outside sound, it's for inside sound, so effectively you're just adding noise to the cabin. I mean, if that's your thing...

Have you disabled ANC?
