Best Answer

a resonator restricts the sound in your exhaust. removing the resonator will give it a deeper sound. i would suggest changing the entire exhaust system and leaving he resonator off which would make a louder/meaner sound. leaving it on would silence the idle but when you rev it really high it would still be loud.

What is the resonator on a car?

"Resonator" usually refers to the Exhaust system. A resonator is a piece of tubing that is slightly larger in diameter than the rest of the exhaust pipe. It is usually located after the catalytic converter, and before the muffler. Vehicles can have multiple resonators. They also usually have some sort of sound deadening material inside. The name resonator would lead one to believe it makes the exhaust louder, but it is actually there to reduce drone and make a quieter exhaust tone. Resonator can also refer to a chamber in the intake system of the car that serves the same purpose as a resonator in the exhaust system.

Where is the resonator in a 1999 civic dx?

If it has one, it would be after the catalytic converter and before your muffler....usually right in the middle of the exhaust line. If it is an aftermarket exhaust system, a lot of people pull the resonator so it is louder and has less restriction without one. Hope this helps!
