Resonator Usefulness
« on: May 04, 2018, 12:15:28 PM »
Is the resonator attached to my air intake elbow important to have on my ‘93 Trans Am? I looked inside of it and it looks like nothing is even attached, if I get a new elbow without it would it make any difference?

Resonators are usually there to engineer out a weird noise, “hoot”, sometimes a whistle.. You get the point ... at a certain throttle angle and engine speed. Consider that they paid someone probably a good bit of money to come up with a usable design. While it probably won’t hurt anything by removing it, they still spent however many dollars and however many cars they made to equip the vehicle with it. Unless it’s in the way of something you’re trying to do I’d leave it alone but that’s just my opinion.
