no it doesnt at all it gives it more off a growling sound to it and at 3000 rpm it tends to do it alot when just reviving it. The trick with mines is i have to shift at around 3500 hear this growl or drive aggressive. Hope this helps

This is the benefit for having larger displacement 4 cyl. It never really has a ricer sound to it. If you've ever heard a subaru, it sounds more like that.

What does it sound like on deceleration with it removed though? Small backfires and popping noises doesn't sound cool.

Removing the resonator does very little. It's a very straight through design and has a great growl to it, that the muffler quickly kills. So the muffler is the one you'll want to swap out for a more open design. A couple members on here have done this and they say it's just dandy. I ordered my Magnaflow a few weeks ago and am waiting (impatiently) for delivery this week.

I believe he was just referring to it being a dual exit, not necessarily a true dual set-up. I would actually be interested in a dual exit.
