  1. Gen2 Powertrain
    I'm looking for another stock resonator from an le2 so I can use two of them for a dual exit on my RS. The muffler packing in my gmpp exhaust has disintegrated and has a god awful resonance in the hollow muffler. I'd like to quieten it down without restriction so I was thinking the stock...

    Hey guys, I'm just wondering if anyone has a magnaflow exhaust with their resonator deleted. I'm getting mine done on the 16th, just wanna know if it's worth it or not. Thanks!

    i was watching a youtube video of a guy remove just that one duct under the airbox and called it done. at first i thought that was all there was to it but i seen a comment to the video: I attempted this today and realized you also have to remove the resonator box underneath that sleeve you...

    Hey guys, I deleted my muffler about 3 months ago now then deleted the resonator the next day! I don't mind the sound but now that it's warmer, I'm sure the warm air in the engine is the cause of it being much quieter than it was in the winter! I'm looking for a quieter sound while idol but...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Okay guys, I have a trubends 2.5" stainless straight pipe exhaust coming in the mail soon and I plan on deleting the 2nd cat, the stock resonator and the muffler but I am concerned about making too much noise. I have been considering installing a LARGE magnaflow muffler (#14716) AND a Dynomax VT...
  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Anyone in the Rochester Minnesota area have a Cruze with a muffler or resonator delete? I know about YouTube videos a lot of the audio quality and noise level is really dependent on microphone quality placement etc I would like to hear one in real life. If you have deleted one did it change the...

    What is an intake resonator, what does it do? also whats the purpose of by passing it?
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have been seeing a lot of posts about the different intakes available for the 1.4L engine. I have had 4/6 installed on my car and feel I have enough experience with these to post a review thread. If I miss anything please let me know and I'll update the reviews as needed. This is all opinion...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Looking for help on this subject. I went to the local muffler shop in my area and got turned down for a custom exhaust due to the funky muffler the Cruze has. However I looked up online a couple videos of people removing the resonator and just replacing it with a magnaflow muffler. Anyone have...

    I have a 1.8 LS with a straight piped exhaust. I want to make it sound better. I have been reading a lot of threads and it seems like everyone is saying to get a Flowmaster 80 Series and a Vibrant Performance Ultra Quiet Resonator. Can I do that with a single straight pipe exhaust? Should I add...

    What is a Resonator Midpipe Downpipe? I heard of a resonator delete what would that do? Also what would an aftermarket pipe do?
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've been running the catless downpipe and midpipe with a 2.25" straight pipe for a while and the rasp is starting to get to me. I know the lack of cats are causing it but that's not changing. So I'm wondering if welding in an 18" or so resonator as close to the midpipe flange will help. Any...

    Does removing your intake resonator really allow for more power and better fuel economy? I feel as though it does from driving mine after this change although I don't know the actual truth and if so does anyone know how much it affects the vehicle?
  14. Gen1 Engine/Transmission Tutorials
    I did the Resonator Bypass but found that my intake started making a vibration sound. We all know that GM spent a lot of time and money making our intakes and that aftermarket ones aren't as good as we once thought they were. So if you want to hear your intake a little more and get around that...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Just wondering, was debating on doing a resonator delete, but leaving the muffler. Just a few questions. Being Canadian will it affect getting my E-Test done? Does anyone have a sound / youtube clip of just a resonator delete. Did a search but most have the exhaust done also. Also is it worth...
  16. Gen1 Powertrain
    Anyone ever done this? I don't want to do a big expensive cat back. I want to pull the resonator and put a magnaflow muffler on the car. I don't think I want to do the muffler until next spring though. If I pull off the resonator only and keep the stock muffler, is the cruising drone pretty...
  17. Gen1 Powertrain
    I pulled the Intake Resonator out of the fender today, and found out that it is full of water. I would not think this would be normal, but I can't see how water was getting into it either. Has anyone else seen this?
  18. Gen1 1.8L
    Hey guys, Did the resonator removal from my air intake. It sounded great (very throaty) and drove nicely, however I head a noise under full throttle around 4000 rpm. It sounds like a metallic fast vibration, so I put it all back together again unfortunately. Anyone had the same and figured out...
