removing resonator

I removed the pre-muffler on my 6-speed last summer. Didn't notice much increase in exhaust note. I know at least one person has removed both the pre-muffler and resonator. How's it sound? Any problems with o2 sensors or stalling? Thanks!
Jim

thanks, yeah, I can get it done cheap. No problems with sensors or stalling? I've read that some Honda motors don't perform as well when backpressure is decreased. What's it sound like: 350Z,
late '90's Grand Prix?

I had it done as well along with the Catalytic. With the 2 resonators and cat removed, mine had a mellow sounding 350Z sound.

No you will not have any issues with 02 sensor or it stalling.

I have the comptech exhaust and i removed my premuffler, also i don't have a resonator as well. I must say it does sound great, but on the 6Gen, it drones a bit on the expressway. Oh well, time for me to get some dynamat.

Took it off last week. Sounds great with both the resonator and premuffler off! Thanks for the info, guys. If you're looking for a more aggressive sound with the stealthy oem look, I'd highly recommend it.

Does removing your resonator not allow you to pass inspection? And doesn't removing your catalytic convertor definitely not allow you pass inspection?

Removing or punching your cat would definetly cause some problems when it comes to passing inspection. The resonators are primarily for sound manipulation, not controlling emissions. The nice thing about hondas? these damn things are built so clean there is a good chance you could get away without your cat. I punched mine on my civic, and it passed with flying colors with 125K miles on the ticker.
