    Clean up your engine bay. Gain a little more low end torque. Enhance the sound of your modified stock intake (i.e. noise generator delete mod already implemented).

    Enjoy!

    Wow, that frees up a bunch of space in front of the engine. I'm moving this to How to's/DIY section.

    what does this do (after deleting the resonator) and do you throw codes?

    You consider this a how-to with no step by step instruction? Theres really no info, other than general pics.

    xcelir8brz is there any evidence of power increase by doing this? Is the car noticeably louder while driving? Id be interested in doing this if it adds "growl" when accelerating (and doesnt throw codes)

    A full how-to has text and pictures. But most seasoned professionals don't need text unless there is torque specs. Newbies need it all. And hence, they can ask questions and I'll answer them.

    Regarding evidence of power increase, despite awesome change in sound - only my butt dyno can tell as of right now. Seems I gained low end torque by chirping tires, but I have not dynoed it in this configuration. I'll be replacing the rubber tube soon with something else, and then see if the growl will come back like when I had the tube and K&N setup (which was dynoed at ~9WHP).

    Alright... what did you just do? I ask because I dont have a BRZ yet and not familiar with the bolt or extra large washer you used to cover up the old location of the Resonator hole. might as well post the answer on the original post.

    I don't get the attitudes flying around in this thread. The name of the game is helping one another. That being said. It would be nice to know exactly what this does, how long it took, a list of parts required, does it cause the car to throw codes, what the removed system is originally designed for etc. Considering that these are a new model of car let's all just agree that we're all 'newbies' and move forward! I for one am all for this mod if the benefits outweigh the risks, whatever they might be.


    (EDIT: And yeah, I get that various cars use similar technologies and that they serve a specific purpose, but that doesn't mean we've all owned cars that had them or really have had occasions to learn what they are for, but we're here now and we'd like to learn!)

    Peace, Love and BRZ's!

    Professor comes into a classroom of 30 students, post photos on wall, writes "Resonator Delete" and "Test in 15 minutes"on the blackboard, leaves room.

    Could you describe what the change in sound is? Louder, quieter, higher/lower pitch?
