resonator removal

2K stock motor Lude seems to have a lag off the line. I've heard that removing the resonator will make the car sound better, but will it improve performance off the line? Will it improve performance at any speed/load? I'm saving for a header and intake, but wondered if this could give me a little extra for no $.

NTPOG 5th Gen Stock Resonator Removal

Edit:
This is copied from the above link in case anyone is too lazy to click it:

"Removing the resonator isn't 'required,' though it's mass and weight that's not necessary. There's no reason you can't skip that step altogether and just install your intake from here (as long as it is a short-ram type and not a cold-air). If you are leasing or plan to sell the vehicle soon, you may want to leave it in to avoid having to re-install it later. Or you might want to remove, and not worry about putting it back in when you sell it- it's all up to you. The stock intake works fine w/o the resonator, it's just a little louder, and aftermarket short-ram intakes works just fine with it in.

Keep in mind that the resonator was put there to quiet the intake noise. If you keep your stock intake but remove the resonator, your stock intake will sound (somewhat) aftermarket. If you're looking for that sound, this is great, but if you like a quiet intake and are looking for a power gain, this is probably not a mod for you- power gains from the resonator removal are very limited, probably on the order or 2-3 hp."

Re: resonator removal

Thanks, I read the write-up previously, but must have missed the part about changing performance.

Re: resonator removal

Go for it. Save some weight, and maybe even sell it to make like $10 or something.
