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...

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.
