de-cat my miltek or remove resonator?

need more noise from the S, running janspeed mani, tom cat and resonated miltek but need more noise, will i go de-cat and leave resonator on or do you think just removing the resonator and replacing with 2.5" stainless will help?
would like it louder and more crackly, dont mind a bit of drone

You'd like the sound from the mod I just did perhaps, converted my MCS to right side exit 2.5" stainless cat back with resonator and single silencer (not very big) 3" outlet. 1/3 of the weight if that, but too loud for me, and just did it to test, others like it though. I wouldn't decat personally, but would use sports cat, and for me the resonated as you have, without it would be louder, but it's difficult as you don't get demo's on exhausts really. Looks better imo.

I'd remove resonator, it's just like Exclusive says: your sound would be louder

Hi ya

Remove the Resonator it's proven that the mini needs the cat to product power.
1320 have done dyno tests with and with out and recomend you keep it, I think they lost 5-10 hp
Unless you get a map
