    Does the factory resonator "increase", or "decrease" the volume on the exhaust??

    I've read that the factory resonator isn't much if any of a restriction in the C63's exhaust system, so why do many delete it?? I'd really like to have a set of long-tube headers and a "tune" on our C63 some day, and really can't see the point of deleting the resonator because of the cost for stainless replacement pipes, and the added noise on top of the headers?

    I've tried uploading some pictures of our "new to us" 2012 C63 sedan, but they where too big, and I couldn't figure out how to resize them to fit?? They're also not great pics because they're taken from in our garage because of our crap weather.

    People delete it to make the car louder but the resonator is there to remove drone.

    I would not remove it. I did it and did not like the sound - too tinny. I put it back on. It reduces drone and also seem to add to the "characteristic "AMG sound".
