I removed the resonator on my car before. The sound was not good plus there's the annoying drone.

If you leave your stock muffler it sounds the same. Quiet.

I took the mufflers off of my totally stock 2011 just to see what it would sound like and it droned bad with or without AFM. Maybe some helmholtz resonators like Solo uses would help.
Concerning Solo's QR resonators for the L77. Help, yes. Eliminate, not even close. Magnaflows (or Borla "crate muffler") are what an LS needs at the end of the line.
Note: Solo's UHF converters are great, but their resonators are barely thick enough to weld. Had to set the welder on the thinest setting it had, to install Solo's 2.25" QR resonators. A larger weld would be considerably stronger, and more stable over time.

has anyone just done a resonator delete to there exhaust system? if so did it sound better ?
I'd delete the Cali emissions 1st, (downstream honeycombs, if not necessary in one's state). The closer the X-pipe is to the engine the better, and 1 X is better than no X on an LS for balanced combustion scavenging.

2 things I got rid of. Muffler is the next thing to go.
