I even removed the resonator on mine, and I only notice resonation at WOT above 6000 RPM.
I think the mounting of the system is a key to making it work right. If the mounting is too tight, the resonance and other exhaust vibration will vibrate through the frame and engine. Too loose and the whole thing could start coming apart.
4/'98 2.8l Drk Grn/Beige/Black - 17" - sport bun warmers - Wood steering wheel, brake handle and trim - Dinan Stage 2 Software, Strut Brace, and Air Intake - Custom Borla Exhaust with Intercooler Tips - Eibach Sway Bars - BavAuto SS Brake Lines - Ron Stygar short Shift - LeatherZ stuff - starry night paint detailing on front - yada, yada, yada - and power top (real roadsters don't have no fuggin' power top)
Well I did it I bought the pieces just like the article said and had it installed today... Well I must say it is a bit loud. Verdict is still out as I am not really sure I am going to stay with it. It really resonates and I have only driven with the top down. I am sure it will really get ugly with the hard top installed. It was by far the cheapest of the systems to obtain. I think I only have $220 in the whole thing including install (got a deal there). Just beware of the noise :)
See ya soon,
