The one in the back with the tip is the resonator. Some say it is loud w/ that removed and some like the sound of it.

The actual muffler does well... most of the muffling.
But the car will droan at certain rpms (usually lower rpms) w/o the resonator chamber. Its annoying to some.

i removed the one in the midle of the car, close to the rear tire, and i didn't notice that much of a difference, the noise is basically the same.

Are you talking about the one in the back the little square one right? How did you take it off ? a hacksaw? how bad does it drone?

I just had my rear resonator cut off after Christmas... cost ~$80 at Mr. Muffler. I sounds pretty good and I am picky about my sound. I is a very deep drone at about 1100-1400 RPM but other than that it just is a slighlty amplified stock exhaust. I in no way think it is annoying. Do it, you won't regret it
Do like me and if you are worried tell them to give you the resonator to put back on later.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">What's stopping you? The only thing I would say is make sure you get the tip put on as soon as possible, you don't want exhaust gas making it's way into the cab.

Also, you will probably have to have them weld a hanger onto the tip. A tip that long will more than likely be too heavy to support itself without a hanger.

Pacesetter makes some very nice pencil tip extensions that give a resonator feature too. Make it sound a little better. My local Pepboys has them.

Here's a pic of the one I'm talking about, at the bottom right. As far as the stupid stickers... the big one with the horse doesn't come on it, it's floating around the package so you don't have to put it on if you don't want to. The yellow stripe is really easy to peel off, comes right off like it's greased. And the yellow pipe interior, it's black by the end of the day.
