Default resonator delete...positive?

I've been concidering delete resonator since i heard one of my fella told me to do it, and i wonder it would bring me positive or negative result. I know exhuast sound will be louder but, i wonder it will add some hp by just delete the resonator... Does anyone heard sound of 370Z without resonator? If u have heard it, how was it?

usually when you remove the resonator you should have gains in performance and sound.
since the air flows freely now i dun see how it wouldn't gain performance and sound wise.
I would also be interested in a sound clip for this :P

The resonator does not restrict the flow enough to see any horsepower gains. Even if it did you might see maybe 1 hp. Not worth the time or money.

And my guess is it would make the already horrible exhaust sound even worse. I HATE the 370 exhaust sound, and a resonator delete would just amplify the nasty-ness! (my little rant on the only 370 flaw )

No result, unless you can see some big restriction inside these Stillen Resonators that I can't...
