i guess ill have to take it back to the shop then
is it a hard job to take out the resinators, because they charged me 150 to put in that kit
do you think it will be cheaper if they just take out the resinators or is it alot of work

They can just cut it out and like I said put in an x-pipe, or str8 pipe, shouldnt charge you more than about 40 bucks for everything, unless you go with an x-pipe, that would be extra...

There is a resonator up front in the exhaust system (the 2-into-1 in the tunnel)
There is a muffler just aft of rear subframe tucked up in a crossflow configuration.
There is a resonator at the rear of the car.

I would need to know what has been removed presently to give you a better idea of what to do next!!

i got removed the muffler at the very end and the one right by the tire well .

this is what i have just that one muffler (1 inlet 2 outlet) then 2 pipes go out to the tips
the i have mid pipes that run up to the resinator up by the front tires
what can i do to remove the front resinator can they put in a y pipe for that ?

If your already running a single into duel out setup then just cut out the front resonator and add the y pipe in its place.

this is what i did, cats to y pipe then around to the muffler. The resonator works with the muffler to reduce sound. Idk how much louder it will get without it tho. Hows the sound on urs. I have a magnaflow exaust, deep rumble not too loud.
