I have done the remove resonator mod. And custom made an cold air intake to my mdx. The sound is great.

Before I stated my project here, I found a vid on youtube of the midmuffler replaced with a y-pipe. It's just a little louder than stock with a little more rumble. My setup (1in-2out muffler, instead of a y-pipe, replacing the stock midmuffler) is barely louder than stock. I get no droning at any rpm, the 1in-2out muffler serves as a resonator.

It's taking a while (due to family time/money considerations) to get to the next step in my project but I've got all the parts I need at this point. I'm not going to hack up the factory J-pipe (in case I want to revert). Instead I'll make flanges and weld up my own head pipes. I'll end up with a true dual (not X-pipe, just a crossover tube) setup, retaining the factory rear mufflers. I am using a couple glasspack mufflers in line for resonators. I hate drone. (Summit has Thrush stainless glasspacks on sale for $23. That's 75% off regular.) It'll sound barely louder than stock, and give me better mpg's on the highway.
