    Resonated is a quieter system, non resonated in turn is louder. I think it's something to do with baffles.

    resonated has an extra box mid system to make it as quiet as a standard exhaust.

    Non resonated is louder

    Would this be reason the non-res ones seem to be cheaper then??

    I suppose so, there's technically more to it I guess by having that extra box.

    Yeh spot on.

    Changing the exhaust was the biggest change when I put mine on.

    You might get EML on dash before you remap. (decat definitely, 100 cell almost certain, 200 cell you might not) ignore the light anyway. won't do any harm.

    your good for stage 2 and 330bhp+ with that setup.

    anymore and you'll need new uprated fuel pump internals.

    Non res 100 cell I went for, will pass MOT and it is the least restrictive. (bar the decat, but that's a ball ache every year and the chances are you'd not notice diddly squit...)

    Remap, go for any of the big boys. Revo, AMD, Shark.

    Shark I went for, I'm happy with it and the price is better than the others.

    I went with Revo and stuck with them for the upgrade path but any of the major players such as AMD,Shark and APR will offer roughly the same.

    The resonated exhaust is about as quiet as the stock system but much less restrictive.

    I've got a chance at buying a second hand non-res Milltek TBE. I'm a bit concerned about the sound level and have only found a few clips on YouTube, if anyone knows of any good sound clips please let me know.

    You will get drone at motorway speeds with the non-res which sounds awful and is a PITA on long motorway drives. The resonated system is very quiet though, probably too quiet but it does have a deeper burble on tickover. You can always buy the resonated centre section later?
