Hey does anybody know what is inside a Nissan Altima resonator? I notice I have some spot welds under the resonator and wondering is there like chambers inside it?

Should be straight through (no baffles)...otherwise it's a muffler not a resonator.

I would guess the spot welds fix some kind of screen holding the glasspack against the outer shell...but that is a WAG on my part...

So if I remove the resonator well I get a sound? My co work said if I cut the 2nd cat out I'll get more power but I might not have a sound? Is this somthing I should do? Or what please help. I really do want to spend a whole lot of money

replace the resonator with your cherry bomb, closest thing to what I think you want. I'd leave the cat in place for now as it won't make much diff to the sound level at all.
