Not going to get any drone by deleting the resonators. The output will be a bit louder but won't create any drone. Factory usually install resonators to cut down on rasp.

I got mine deleted for about 75 dollars. Just to clear something up for people who are looking to get the resonators deleted, where they are located is right after the H-pipe and there is no bend in the tube at all. So all the muffler shop or you have to do is cut the resonator out, and weld in the same size tube. Your car will be a whole new beast!!

I've had GT500 AB's installed on by 2013 CS/GT for a year now. Since then I have read about the resonator delete. Read every comment and was worried it wouldn't make a difference or I wouldn't like it. What a great $80 delete! Doesn't sound a lot different at low idle or just cruising along but getting on it brings a smile to my face. A different, unmuffled, tone and it sounds significantly louder to my ears. Glad I made the change!

Can anyone post a pic of their stock exhaust prior to res delete? I can't find resonators on the GT-500 but I assume they have to be there, as the car is too damn quiet to not have them and just have the SVT mufflers.

Gt500s don't have resonators, that's why some people buy GT500 over axle pipes for their GTs.

GT 500's don't have resonators. Here are a couple of pictures of the GT 500 OTA pipes I bought that were off of a 2013 GT500 compared to my stock OTA pipes.

The addition of the GT500 pipes really made a difference in sound.

That is what I thought...time to go with turn-downs or something like it @ the cats before the mufflers....GT-500 SVT mufflers have a beautiful sound, but when getting on it, the super-charger over-takes the exhaust note without question. When I had my turn-downs right after the cats exiting @ passenger\driver side, I loved the rumble, then when you got on it it still sounded proper as in the higher rpms the mufflers still did the work, did not sound like straight-piped crap.
