front resonator

as i was crawling around under the car i noticed my front resonator was cracking so i was wondering what my options are as to fixing it should i go with stock or do they make aftermarket resonators that sound better should i cut it out and throw a glass pack in there i saw in one thread i shouldn't put just a pipe there cause it sounds bad i plan on leaving the rest of the exhaust alone for now but what would you guys do

going for a grumble sound deep as possible what would be the first step in getting that i no a simple glass pack wont be were i want it but would it be a start in the right direction? i love the sound of the 40 series muffler one day ill get that but what should i do for now. surprisingly it doesnt sound to bad with a crack in the resonator a little grumble but its right under me kinda loud inside the car so thats why i was thinking glass pack to assist in moving the grumble to that back

AC belt only has a load on it when the compressor is on, otherwise it's just another idler pulley. No tangible benefit from pulling the belt.

Also know that the compressor does run when heater controls are on Defrost, to remove fogging from windows. You probably want to keep that.

At WOT, AC relay is de-energized as well (if it is engaged).

From what I've seen as long as you have a full exhaust that isn't broken its fine
