Resonator delete on an aftermarket exhaust

Looking to make my GTI a decent amount louder (not obnoxious) and I was curious if anyone has done a resonator delete on an aftermarket catback? I currently have a EuroJet TBE. The sound is good all around, but I want something a little beefier without having to spend hundreds on another DP or catback. Any suggestions? I know resonator deletes have been the "talk of the town" recently. Any cons to doing this as well?

If it has mufflers try deleting them, the resonators help more with the drone


I'm catless with just resonator delete and it's pretty damn loud with a pretty good sound to it. I just have muffler suitcase on.

I have the first generation EuroJet TBE catted but I kept the resonator on and remove the rear muffler and installed a SPM track section tailpipe. Sound awesome

Alright, I think I'll keep the resonator and go with the muffler instead. I already emailed my nearest shop. Thanks

Is there only one muffler that needs removed? (I'm not very exhaust system savvy). I think I'm going to go with the muffler delete. I don't know which generation I have, I just know I bought it last May.

Deleting both mufflers will give more pops and gurgles it'll sound great!

I did a comparison video awhile back with my Billy Boat exhaust:



I am eventually planning on doing the reverse of deleting the mufflers and keeping the resonator, but it's going to be some time as I am currently saving up for other parts.
