Cat Back or resonator delete??

Just had my ecs tuning downpipe installed last week and I already want more noise. Don't know if I should do a res delete for 70 at a local shop or get the beluga racing catback which has a cheap price and has a bunch of good reviews.

Muffler delete and get a vibrant bottle resonator. Happy with it. Quiet enough and sound good when you mash the ⛽️

I had a resonator delete and stock dp for a while and it was fine, but i've heard that the sound gets a little raspy with a dp and no resonator, could be wrong. Rn i've got a Beluga catback and i love it, it's lowkey but at WOT the exhaust really opens up. All the welds were great and so far no exhaust leaks. for ~300 dollars it's definitely worth it, and definitely sounds nice with a dp (getting a CTS catted downpipe soon).

I was good for a while with a catted dp and replaced resonator with vibrant. No rasp just a little more noise and tone. Then I gutted the muffler got. Just a little more. Mostly got a true catback for the look of nice big tips.

I have a catted downpipe so if the res delete makes it really raspy I wouldn't want I'm leaning more towards the catback but I'm not 100% yet waiting for more input

I've been thinking of doing a resonator delete for the better part of a year... Videos don't seem to demonstrate it very well. But the local shop will charge me $50 for the delete. Safe to say its worth a shot?

Cat Back or resonator delete??

I did a resonator delete in my GTI about one week after I picked it up. Best thing Iíve done to the car so far. I was charged 70 bucks for it. The sound is amazing on a cold start and the up shifts are awesome! There is slight drone around 80 but just turn the radio up! I highly recommend it. I have the stock downpipe and the DSG.

A lil raspy but sounds good to me, probably going to add a vibrant resonator sometime

So I ordered a vibrant resonator for 54 and I went to go get a quote at a local muffler shop guy told me if I just put a vibrant resonator on it would make it quieter so he gave me all the options I could do. Custom cat back for like 380 or I could do a muffler delete with mandrel bends 2.5 inches with 4.0 tips for 280 he said afterward I could decide if I still wanted to still put on the vibrant resonator
