you mean taking them off? no a lot of us ditched the resonators. i have all 3inch pipe with dual magnaflow mufflers and no resonators.

but be careful with you muffler selection if you don't want drone in the car.

Remove the suitcase muffler in the middle and add pipes there, leaving the rear resos if you don't want drone.

Depends how much of an ass the dealer is. I'd still recommend replacing the suitcase muffler, not the resonators.

If you modify the exhaust, the only thing the dealer can void is the warranty on the OEM exhaust. They might tell you otherwise but they are lying. They cant say changing a different muffler made your water pump go out. They have to prove your mod made a certain part break.

I got flowmaster delta flow 40s in place of my suitcase muffler and I got blastin bob 5db reso eliminators on the rear in place of my resonators. I only get drone when cruising at 80mph. I also disabled my MDS so that may help. If I still had MDS with my setup, i might get a little more drone.

Joe is right. any exhaust mods will void the emissions equipment and systems warranty only. but you should read this from another forum. have you ever heard of the Magnuson Moss warranty act? here is how it applies to you and your modded car.

Quote :
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act: Protecting tweakers, tuners, and other users of aftermarket equipment.

You want to upgrade your vehicle with aftermarket equipment, but you’️re worried about putting the vehicle’️s warranty at risk. It’️s no wonder, how many times have you heard some one at a dealership say that installing aftermarket equipment automatically voids the warranty? This common misconception has been repeated often enough to be widely believed –though it is completely false.

Fact: Dealers don’️t like warranty work, because it pays less than normal repair work. By promoting the myth that aftermarket equipment automatically voids warranties, some dealers avoid such low-paying work. Instead, they attempt to charge customers the prime service rate for work which is rightfully done under warranty.

Most vehicle owners are not aware they are protected by federal law: the Magnuson-Moss Warranty – Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act of 1975. Under the MMW Act, aftermarket equipment which improves performance does not void a vehicle manufacturer’️s original warranty, unless the warranty clearly and conspicuously states that aftermarket equipment voids the warranty (ours does not). Most states have warranty statutes, as well. Which provide further protections for vehicle owners.

In other words, that means a dealer can’️t wiggle out of his legal warranty obligation merely because you install aftermarket equipment. To find out if any aftermarket equipment automatically voids your vehicle’️s warranty, check the owner’️s manual. It will be under the sections titled "What is not covered". Your vehicle manufacturer is simply saying he does not cover the aftermarket products themselves. He is not saying that the products would void the vehicle warranty.

Suppose your modified vehicle needs repairs while still under warranty. Without analyzing the true cause of the problem, the dealer attempts to deny warranty coverage. He made his decision simply based on the fact that you’️ve installed aftermarket equipment – a convenient way to dodge low-paying warranty work.

Fact: A dealer must prove – not just say – that aftermarket equipment caused the need for repairs before he can deny warranty coverage on that basis.

Point out to the dealer the provision of the MMW Act. Require that he explain to you how the aftermarket equipment caused the problem. If he can’️t – or his explanation sounds questionable – it is your legal right to demand he comply with the warranty.

If you are being unfairly denied warranty coverage, there is recourse. The Federal Trade Commission, which administers the MMWAct, monitors compliance with warranty issues. Direct complaints to the FCT at (202) 326-3128.

These are direct quotes from US auto manufacturers.

DODGE MOTORS

“Certain changes that you might make to your truck do not, by themselves, void the warranties described in this booklet. Examples of some of these changes are: installing non-Chrysler parts, components, or equipment.” – 1997 Warranty Information supplement to Dodge

GENERAL MOTORS CORPORATION

“If a Chevrolet part fails due to a defect in material or workmanship not related to (on aftermarket products) or the labor to install it. Chevrolet would be responsible for covering the failed part.” – Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center

FORD MOTOR COMPANY

“Installation of a non-genuine Ford item does not, in and of itself, render warranty void.” – Ford Owner Relations Division

Ya but they sure the fuck will try. Joey this is the service manager over at xxxxxxxxxx we just looked at your car and your battery is shot along with your altenator. Its not covered under warranty cause you put an aftermarket exhaust on your car. So its going to cost $2000.00 plus your first born!!!
