I don't think that the resonator has any emmissions purpose. I think that is only the catalytic converter. So removing the resonator should not affect passing emissions, again just to the best of my knowledge. Someone here may correct me on this.

To my understanding, it is used in quieting the exhaust. I have read where others have deleted the resonator and had a bad drone in the car at certain rpms.
