Resonator question

Anybody here replace or think about replacing both resonators(front resonator and lunch box) on their svtf? I've been thinking about trying this out and weld a couple vibrant resonators in their place while leaving the factory middle muffler in place. Or delete thw lunch box respnator and repalce the front respnator with a different piece. Any opinions on this?

If you take them out it should make it louder. I would take the back one out and see how it sounds. Personally I don't like the fart can sound. I ran a single chamber race muffler with no resonators and I think it sounds sweet. I am turbo'ed though so that probably makes a difference.

Yeah, I know that. i don't mean just cutting them out completely though, im asking about replacing them with some other more performance type resonators(looking at vibrant bottle style resonators) Ive looked at just deleting the lunchbox and it doesn't seem to change the sound too much. I want a little more sound without it being obnoxious. The magnaflow and borla catbacks are a little loud for my taste. Fswerks stealth is nice, but its bit of my price range

Delete the last one and replace the middle one with a 4" mangaflow, it will be a tad louder. Deleting the rear res doesnt really affect sound too much
