Muffler and Resonator deleted

Who here has a muffler and resonator deleted?
My current setup, muffler and resonator deleted. follow by 3"in pipe(basically secondary cats, y piped into a single 3" pipe all the way to the tips)
Went from PE to dis and its loud AF.
I have drone on highway and it hella loud when i first start the car.
It sounds hella raw and when i slow down it has a nice back fire pop sound.

Anyone know if i put my OE resonator back onm will it quiet my car a little?
Basically want a muffler deleted and NOT muffler and resonator deleted...

Just because something is expensive doesn't mean it's good or better...

Try to put the resonator back on and see how you like it.

I have the muffler delete with stock resonator still in place and love the sound. It burbles a ton in DS mode and doesn't drone terribly bad IMO. And, I think it sounds better than the PE. It has a much deeper rumble to it compared to the tinny PE.

Its actually grown on me and sounds hella raw depending on how much i gas it. and yes it sounds amazing when i down shift and burbles something you cant hear on a PE. Thanks

I wanted a custom setup and something louder/raw than PE, might put on the resonator if its too loud, but its grown on me and its only loud if you gas it.
