Hi the resonator is there for a reason in most cases this is a cataylic converter so removal is illegal.

also a resonator box also adds to the back pressure in an exhaust system. the back pressure on a road car improves fuel consumption.

it's removal does mean the engine will burn more fuel and be less powerful in certain circumstances like going up a steep hill.
