    RR Sport HST v6 resonator delete

    Hi everyone. I have seen a lot of exhaust solutions on the forum for v8 models, but haven't seen any for the v6. I decided to experiment with a cheap solution. I noticed the F Pace S doesn't have a resonator and it sounds really good. The RR sport exhaust looks very similar, but has a resonator. I went to a local muffler shop and had them remove the resonator only and replace it with two stainless steel pipes welded in. It sounds great, just a little bit louder than stock with no drone and some nice crackles and pops. The shop only charged me $150. Here is a picture of what I am talking about from a stock photo I found online and also a video of my car.

    I live in Northern, VA. Where did you get this done at? Also would this void the warranty on the vehicle?

    It's called a resonator. Any welding or muffler shop can remove it for you and install through pipes

    well, i took it to the shop yesterday and was advised that it may cause drone. so i'm not sure whether to cut out that resonator, or just replace the rear mufflers with one that is less restrictive for a bit more noise. kind of a toss up now on which do to.

    You won;t get much change messing around with the rears. Other folks have tried and it was pretty much a waste of time. stick with mucking about with the resonator it's the only way you are going to get any results.
