What is the purpose of a resonator on a car?
Also question is, will removing resonator affect performance?
Because the resonator delete is part of the back end of the exhaust system, removing the device can sometimes impact the performance of your catalytic converter. When that occurs, you can sometimes trigger a check engine light warning or a code in your system because there are back pressure changes which occur.
Furthermore, do I need a resonator on my car? If you want your car to be a little louder, then I would recommend leaving the resonator on, but if you want the car to be a lot louder and don't care about fuel efficiency, you can remove it completely. The other option is taking the middle ground of changing the muffler and or the resonator.
Also to know is, does removing resonator increase horsepower?
The resonator does restrict exhaust flow and rob some horsepower. If you remove the resonator and all the rest of the exhaust system such as the muffler then there may be a slight increase in horsepower.
Where is the resonator located on a car?
The resonator on a car is a hollow chamber in the exhaust tract. Its location is placed a certain distance from the muffler and engine to allow the resonant effect.
