Hey all.

Got the resonator delete done on my Works today and can highly recommend it!
The over pop is more noticeable and frequent, def something I'm loving and thought I would share.

before i got it done that it wouldn't affect anything on car. :confused1:

Bit concerned now! :sad:

By deleting the resonator you're changing the sound waves which will now hit the baffles in your back box at a different resonance eventually causing them to fail.

Same happens when you run a decat on a one-ball etc.

Its only just started rattling and its only light just now. Will get it cut open and re sealed at some point. Unless i can get a spare somewhere.

I've had this done and when it's cold it sounds god-awful. Great once it's warmed up so I've been wondering if it's down to the baffles expanding and not rattling.

Awesome either way though, gives me an excuse to replace it with something different :)

My exhaust fell off after about a month... literally dropped off half way down my street! I'd have been annoyed but i couldn't help laughing as it set off all the car alarms on the street :D

Welded the git back together now so we'll see how long that lasts!
