Resonator delete with stock exhaust

Does a resonator delete with the stock exhaust make the car sound better and louder?
Would it add any drone?
Iím looking for a way to make exhaust louder without spending a ton on a full exhaust.

Just buy a AA midpipe. Its good for 10-15 HP and it gets rid of the rasp and increases overall volume about 20%.

I also added Wagners's 200CEL HFC's and that also increased the volume even more. Probably a total of 40-50% louder with the flaps open in Sport +

In comfort mode with the exhaust flaps open its perfect for highway or stealth driving. In Sport, or Sport + it really opens up!

Any additional feedback from just the DP upgrade? And any before/after videos by any chance? Also, did you get a CEL by any chance after swapping to the DP + AA mid combo?

No CEL from the AA Midpipe. Yes the HFC's throw a CEL.

I can clear the codes from my AK Motion Vent display.

I would like to know aswell - did you delete the res or just cleansed it?

PPF is particle filter. It ruins every new car sound in EU.
