Hey! I've been wondering if deleting the resonator on the V6 will make a big difference in sound, of course it won't have the big, mean sound of a V8, but I'd like my truck to be a bit louder than it is currently. What all would removing the resonator entail? I'd like to keep everything in front of the resonator as it is, and keep my stock muffler. Down the road I'd love to purchase a real aftermarket exhaust, but for the time being I'd like to remove the resonator, as I am a student and can barely afford all that I've done to the truck lately :/.
Thanks for any help!

I don't think it makes much difference, IIRC the Sports don't have one to allow for a shorter exhaust.

It shouldn't make a huge difference, just a little louder when you get on it.
