Talking I need advice about taking off my resonator

Whats up guys, I am new to this forum and I am seeking some help from people who actually know what they are talking about, and not my idiot friends lol. So long story short i have a 2009 E350 4matic. Great car, but im thinking of doing some work to it. i heard that you can take the resonator off and it makes the car a bit louder.. has anyone ever had any problems with this? and is there anything i should worry about before doing this? Thanks

Welcome. Please click user cp and edit details so you can add your location and vehicle information to your profile, it's useful information when you're seeking assistance.

Looking at the EPC, I can't even tell for sure that your car has a resonator (sometimes called a center muffler by MB). It looks as though it just has a heat shield. It does have two rather large mufflers (one on each side right before the exhaust outlet), so MB may have incorporated a resonator with that, in which case you'd need to replace the mufflers to achieve your desired result.

You have a W211, so you might find better advice posting in that specific forum, too.

Good luck and enjoy the car.
