Hey guys, just wondering what effect would removing my rear muffler and putting a resonator in have?

Im after a deeper sound, and im aiming for the pop and crackle on de-celleration.

could this possibly cause drone at highway speeds?

edit: should also mention its a 2.5inch system with center and rear muffler, high flow cat and extractors.

I only have the centre muffler on my EB and it has the popping noise and no drone.

Doing this would only make current popping and crackling more noticable. This is generally caused by s**t tune (usually due to huge cam on stock ecu), although you can get it even with a good tune on a really hot engine.
