Default 14" magnaflow

So booked my appointment to install y pipe and 14" magnaflow. Also have the S&B CAI. Wondering if i should cut out the resonators?

What are your thoughts will it be loud enough with them in or should i cut them out?

If the inevitable drone with resonators removed is going to piss you off, I would leave them in.

Listening 2 the videos seems like with the resonators crackles more and without it sounds smoother. Man it's a hard decision. The drone won't bother me and from what i hear there is no drone?

if your pipes are going out the back then cut the reso's. mines dumped and drones very little. save the time and do it right the first time, CUT EM!

I am running 35" mtz and my eco never comes on the highway unless i am going down hill. Is there a big difference once you cut the reso out or does it just prevent drone?
