hey,
was reading about removing the exhaust resonator, there are plenty of claims that it makes a nice sound to the exhaust others say its way to loud. Anyone ever do this to a stock civic.

Do not do this thinking you will get a nice sound. The resonators' main job is to remove high frequency waves from the exhaust pulse. Removing it all together will only increase the mosquito factor in your exhaust tone. I cannot say this emphatically enough, a stock Civic will not benefit from this performance wise, sound wise you will only be punishing your eardrums and those of your neighbours. They sound really, really bad.
Guys with muffler shop exhausts can speak to this, no cat no res, + turbo or drager style muffler equals NOISE! Not performance!

I couldn't agree more! Just because its loud doesn't mean it's fast. By removing the resonator all you will acomplish is getting pulled over constantly.
