I have an oval glasspack, er magnaflow, without a resonator and I'm ready to get rid of that thing! I cannot stand the fake sound of that muffler and not real sure what I will go with. I don't consider what I have to be drone, but more of the signature "hum" sound of the MF muffler. Some people may like it, but I don't like driving something that sounds 'mean' without having much to back it up. Sure, it's decent for what it is, but guess I'm just used to things that have high power to weight ratio and can back up a performance sound
Even so, I am glad I removed the resonator...It really didn't quiet it down *that* much and it weighs a decent amount (dead weight) and another restriction in an already restricted exhaust setup (esp. the manifolds!)
Don't get me wrong, I want it to "sound" like the V8 it is and wouldn't mind a throatier muffler that sounds more natural and not overly loud; those days are long past me, unless the engine truly is powerful and built (like my chevelle).
