I like the sound right now it would just be nice to be a tiny bit quieter with pops. I'm thinking deleting the resonator and putting on a 2.5" straight pipe would sound really nice. Thoughts?

Whatever you do, don't delete the resonator unless you want the rasp of a ricer. It will sound horrific. Instead, get yourself a front pipe/downpipe from the header between the midpipe. Or increase the size of the midpipe but leave the resonator in place. You won't regret it. These cars sound much better without the muffler but I don't like the look of nothing being there. I have the front pipe and axle back. I think next is welding a bigger midpipe to the resonator or going straight pipe from the resonator back for more gurgles. Just my 2 cents, hope this helps!
