    Registered to thank all who have chimed in here. Discovered this thread last month and decided to go for the #7 delete yesterday. Went to a local muffler shop and they completed the job in less than 30 minutes. I have a 2010 N/A RRS HSE and am extremely pleased with the results, I can finally hear the engine!!

    No drone, sound when you want it (gas pedal), not too loud, and the rare occasional backfire is awesome as well.

    If you are on the fence, I suggest going for it!

    Thanks again to all that have shared, very pleased with this low cost and fun mod.

    How much is a reasonable price to pay for this modification?

    depends on what the exhaust shop or welder charges. The White Center muffler shop would be $25 or $30.

    Wow, that is extreme. Do you like the sound? You should be able to attach a video or maybe a link to a photo sharing app. Since you removed the muffler you could add an H pipe to reduce some drone in the vehicle if there is any.

    Removing the resonator...should I?

    Thought I’d hop on this thread to give my opinion. I removed #7 this morning and am back at the shop already having it changed. It was terribly loud, tons of backfire, but that being said there was no drone. I just couldn’t handle the backfire on every start and every downshift, truly annoying. I’m here now having Magnaflow resonators put on which should reduce all of that and make it 40% quieter than just the straight pipes. I’ll update this when they’re done.

    Re: Removing the resonator...should I?

    As I said above, just removing #7 made it sound like a ricer with a V8. Defiantly not classy. I still wanted the louder exhaust so they put two magnaflow resonators in and I couldn’t be happier with the sound. Video below:

    How does it sound when you press the gas and driving.

    It sounds great, less backfire and a more refined sound. I would give you a clip, but it’s at the dealer, again (3rd time this month), for a new power steering pump. When I get it back I’ll post something.
