I was thinking about getting rid of the resonators and running a tailpipe straight back. But first I have to tackle a leaky exhaust manifold and connection between the headers and cat.

All a resonator delete does is allow more drone.

got it, i was thinking there would be less restrictions for the exhaust. maybe i will just invest in better mufflers.

Mufflers and intermediate pipes are much worse than the cats and resonators people are eager to get rid of.
Mufflers are 1 3/4" inside and some of the intermediate pipe is smashed to D-shape.
