people say to take the resonator out to make your exhaust sound louder. I think the gto has two.. how easy is that to do and what are the effects and disadvantages?

I don't know how "Hip to the Resonators" the muffler shops are nowadays but when I had mine removed I played hell trying to convince the guy that they were not cats. The 04's have 2 (the second chamber downstream) on each pipe and they look like they could be cat chambers-they are not. Good luck and look for a price range between $60-$80.

Hey exactly were are the resonators.. What do they look like. I just had a loudmouth 1 system put in. Would that require to have removed the resonators. Its a whole cat back system. Looking under the car I do see two cats looking things on the back strem, two me they are cats,, does anyone know for sure were they are located on the 04 and what they look like??

Removed the resonators on ours and didn't make much of a difference in sound. Maybe a tad, but not worth the trouble. IMO
Here's where they are located on a stock 04

Here's a pic of the pipe I replaced the resonator with.

Just uploaded a vid of the 1st time I started it after removing the resonators. May take several minutes to finish converting...

Hey thanks 1badassz. that really helps. I always thought that those were Cats. In fact I even asked the guy who installed my SLP and he also sayed that they were cats. Wow we were wrong. So then there is only 2 cats on the car right?. Cool JBA mid pipe catless here we come,,,,,,,,,

Yeah.. There's only 2 cats, up by the exhaust manifolds. I decided to just go with Kook LT's and Off Road connection pipes. Sounds much better.
