Its real easy, hardest part is finding something to block it up with.

You could just get a hard intake pipe. It eliminates the resonator easily and gives you some nice bling under the hood . 3SX and Dynamic among others have them.

ya if you're goin for bling, then the intake hard pipe is the way to go. however, you won't gain any hp.

BUT, if you just want to remove the resonator to make your intake sound louder, then simply remove it and i've heard that the top from a peanut butter jar will fit nicely. heck, just measure the diameter of the opening, then go to the grocery store and shop for similarly diametric food jar tops.

happy shopping!

Peanut butter jar lid is way too big. You need something like a pill bottle lid. I used the lid off a bottle of Pepto Bismol.

Re: resonnator bottle removal

So removing the resonator is only for sound right? What if when you replace it with an intake pipe like the one from 3sx. What happens to the resonator then? Do you still need something like the jar to hold it in place or whatever? Also, since the jar is made of plastic, wouldn't it melt? What's the point of the resonator to begin with anyways?

Re: resonnator bottle removal

Its like a silencer or muffler for your intake. Take it iff and theres just a hole in the tube, replace hte tube with an aftermarket one and there is no more hole.

that's exactly one of the problems that's arisen here in this thread. i think most people agree with me when i say that to replace the intake tube with an aftermarket one is just pure bling. our intake flow characteristics are just about efficient as they can be. that's why this thread is titled "Resonator Bottle Removal," that is what we're trying to do, and for the sound gained, your only expense is a bottle top, instead of a $50+ new intake tube that will net you 0 hp.

Re: resonnator bottle removal

i took mine off yesterday and took the car out to see if i could hear the difference. there really isnt a difference but at 6k rpms there is a high pitch squeel and then it stops when i keep it gunned. what is this sound? does it mean my replacement for the hole the bottle leaves is not tight enough or strong enough? i used a cap off of a shoe cleaner spray. just like a spray paint bottle cap. should i use something stronger? im thinkin i should just put the res bottle back on

Re: resonnator bottle removal

2 easy ways to check if it is leaking air.
1 soapy water, 2 a thin strip of paper, whichever you go with, put the soapy water around the seam, or move the slip of paper around the edges...as you are doing this, have a friend give it some gas. IF you get bubbles or if hte paper starts waving from escaping air..u found a leak...if not, hten I'd think your fine.
