    i hear you can:
    1. move the VTS
    2. move the throttle body
    3. use a sawzall.....

    sorry my power pipe is still on the workbench, so thats just what I've read. I'll be installing tomorrow so I'll know for sure then. I'll probably opt for the sawzall method though..(best tool ever)

    Hmm, unless you're just cutting the adapter part of the resonator off it looks kinda tight to get a sawzall in there.

    My favorite way to get them out is to use a sawzall with a 12" blade.

    Just cut the part off that the hoses connect to. (the part that looks like a pipe)

    They come right out after that

    Oh, don't forget to vacuum out the plastic shavings after.

    VTS removal, it will come out...I built myself a VTS tool (RXP STEVE likes it) using a large socket I chopsawed in half and welded a 12" tube extention...

    sawzall would too...

    Is this also an issue with the RXT? I have 3 sawzaws if so.

    No, since you don't have the VTS unit, it comes right out...

    BOTH SKIS you have to wrestle it, but it does come out...

    I highly suggest doing what you can to NOT cut it...both for plastic shavings and future needs...

    Removing the throttle body is easier than the VTS if you dont have the tool.

    So far the sawzall sound the easiest way out. If I were to cut out the resonator & for some lame reason I decide to go back to stock would I be able to just replace the resonator with a SS tube? I know it would be loud but would it work?
