Anyone else remove the resonator on a SLK55 AMG?

I want to increase the exhaust sound on my 55 but want to retain the stock look. The stock sound is good but just not loud enough for me (flame me if you must).


I purchased a duplicate SLK 55 AMG exhaust system from the resonator back through the mufflers and tips. I’m keeping my original system intact so I can easily go back to stock if needed. I’m making an appointment with a shop in Ambler, PA, Fabspeed Motorsport to install the duplicate system without the resonator.

I used a light to look into the muffler from the tip end and can see all the way through to the back side through both tips. I see no baffles and no perforations inside the muffler. So the mufflers appear to be just a straight pipe! Can anyone else confirm this?

I hope to get this done in the next few weeks. I will try to record the exhaust sound before and after the mod, so I can post here.

I’m going to give this a try before removing the secondary cats.

Do you know if the 350 has the same, And could the same be done to get more sound out of it.
