I did the same except for simply knocking the insides of the DPF out with a long crow bar. I do get very slight drone at certain speeds, but not enough to bother me or my wife. Am curious if you have that, though.

This is what I would do.

I do not want to delete it and then have it come back and bite me in the @$$. So To my fellow Texan Hot Shot drivers, do I need to worry about that? Or am I stressing over nothing? I already asked this question in kowclub173 thread and he said its not an issue, just put a muffler on it. But i figured why not make my own dedicated thread about this. Thanks in advance for any helpful info.

I Have been thinking about this, I have a friend with a gutted DPF sitting in his shop right now. I was thinking of building a bi-mode muffler inside the original DPF and a resonator out of the Cat. A little history on me. I build 3" Modded Corvette mufflers. I cut the original mufflers completely apart and completely rebuild them to free up the restriction inside the muffler and make it sound louder and better than factory. Then on the quiet side, make it quieter than factory. Since starting this I have an understanding on how mufflers work and how sound waves work. I have an idea on how to build a bi-mode muffler with the original DPF housing. I just gotta source a 4" valve. So i can have the free flow and sound of a straight pipe and have the nice quiet side when i want it to be quiet.

here is a video of my old Z06 with these mufflers.
