so if its one whole unit (cat/resonator) can I upgrade the cat and delete the resonator without having the exhaust sound louder?

Removing the res can make the exhaust very raspy. You can use a glass pack in it'* place.

Depending on your set up taking out the res can make it raspy like Dan said, however I took mine out and have dual GM Bosal mufflers and the only time it gets raspy is if I really hit it in park or neutral (when the engine is not under load)
