So are there no negatives a effects to a resonator delete, it just filters out sound? I don't want to violate emissions laws in California.

The only way you will fail emissions is if you remove the catalytic converter. Which is completely separate from the resonator. :thumbsup:

Can i get this done pretty much anywhere? I like the way it sounds and its not too loud.

For a good, trustworthy job go to your local Midas or Meineke. Make sure you ask around about prices though. Its a somewhat subjective job so different mechanics will give you different prices.

so to get this done I dont need to buy anything beforehand, just show up and be like "yo, how much to take my resonator off?" and they know what you mean?

WHOA!

Places like this normally suck and have horrible welders...check around your area for a good exhaust shop. After having failures with multiple places I found a guy who runs his own shop and has been the 45 years. Guy is amazing with exhaust work...its awesome to see a 70 year old man lifting an exhuast by himself.

Yeah, those are last places you want to go to do this. Find a local place that takes pride in their work and will appreciate the business. Locals will almost always be cheeper, too.

The one I went to started the car and then lifted it back up and let it run to make sure there were no leaks in his welds. So make sure they do that.
