But you know what they say when you assume.
The resonator just pops out of the bottom, one bolt holding it to the frame. Unless you're taking about cutting the flap, which isn't overly required. The whole front end is pressurized while driving.

Dyno work has shown an extra 1-2 HP, but that is a cool environment with the hood up. The best I can say is to give it a shot and take note of your fuel mileage and the overall behavior of the drivetrain. You won't hurt anything because it is pre-filter; many people have driven for months with the lid off.
