nice. sometimes i wish i had the v6 so i can simply just remove the resonator and get that awesome deep sound combo with the exhaust.

The i4 can get it as well don't worry. IMO i4 sounds closer to a V8 more than V6's due to the harmonic balance of V6's being a bit difference.

I know RV6 is in the works now for PCD's for you i4 guys!

Just stay patient, he does very good quality work!

okay, i'll wait. so in the mean time, wat other options are there besides the resonator removal? i want that deep and at the same time loud sound without the rasp. some drone is okay. don't mind it too much actually.

Don't delete your resonator. A lot of the V6 guys who ran the magma flow and wanted more growl deleted the resonator and then when they got the PCDs it added Aton of rasp and so they had to reinstall the resonator. So keep it on you'll need it. Check your inbox!

what does a high flow catalytic converter do? improve sound?

restricts the air flow. So if your state has emissions you have a better chance passing than if you didn't have cat's at all. Its not as restricting as the OEM cat's though. Also it does tend to reduce the amount of rasp compared to a vehicle without cat's.
