Does anyone know how this would sound with straight pipes in place of the reonators and if this would cause any problems.

Resonators? As far as I know, we [on the V6] have one resonator and two mufflers.

Ok, now that that has been said. Is anyone able to actually answer the question I posted.

I did. What engine do you have? As far as I KNOW [which means, I know] that on the V6, that is what we have.

Can you answer my question?

by taking that resonator out you'll get a little bit of rasp at the top of the tachometer. If you keep the stock muffler, it will probably sound like a muffled rasp. You would probably get about the same sound as some of the v6 nissans rolling around. I haven't heard a v6 fusion without the resonator but from experience, that's what it will do.
If it you want a more exotic sound but less obnoxious, keep the resonator and throw some magnaflows or borla mufflers on with a 1/4" larger piping.

removed the stock resonator a few days ago, I like the sound, should have been like that from the factory, can't see why they wanted to deaden the sound so much, probably shed a few lbs as well. There isn't much of an increase in sound inside the cabin , which is nice, but a nicer sounding exhaust outside, and top end power feels a bit better to boot. Very easy mod.
