The Resonator or "Pre-Muffler" as it'* sometimes called is located between your CAT & the Rear Muffler at the back of the car!

The resonator has minimal back pressure.. it'* just there to control the sound and cabin drone from the exhaust. Removing your cat you will loose quite a bit of back pressure. A lot of them would suggest to change to a high flo cat.. but the way I would do it first ( since it seems from your sig.. there'* no performance mod currently ) would be to just change the muffler and a high flo cat. later on change the tubing to mandrel bent ones. ( and in which time you'll know whether you want your exhaust louder or not ) in which time you can have them either remove the res fora straight piece or leave it alone.
