Muffler delete and Resonator delete

So about a month ago I got a muffler delete and I love it, only thing is that I just wish it was louder. I'm thinking of deleting my resonator to hopefully get that slightly louder tone. Don't want to wake up my neighbors but I'd also like to hear my car when cruising around with other cars.

My question is for any of you who have done both deletes, what do you all think? Is it crazy obnoxious? There's some drone now with the muffler delete but I still have the sound aktor on (any way to turn it off w.o VAGCOM)?? I heard some of the drone goes away when turned off. It's not horrible but on long trips it can get annoying when trying to listen to music at the same time.

Unplug it under the hood or get OBDeleven.

It's under the rain tray/cowl.

Remove the weather stripping, then the 3 or 4 steel clips and you can lift it up enough to fit your hand in there

It's in the center of the car and held on by one 10mm I believe...maybe 13mm, but either way it's one nut and one electrical connector

I wouldn't suggest removing both the muffler and resonator. The best option would be to do a downpipe but that'll make it drone really bad if you don't upgrade your resonator and or catback. I ran a muffler delete with a downpipe for about a mile before I decided to order everything to build a new cat back

Well the plan is to eventually do a turbo back exhaust, however, a down pipe voids the warranty, and I'm trying to not void the warranty

I did hear that the DP and a muffler delete have very poor drone so I didn't plan on doing the delete and DP at the same time
