I believe that this exhaust tip thingie actually removes the resonator ... so I was just wondering if anyone here has done that to their truck, and if other than the nicer look, it makes a nicer sound.
Thanks for the emissions clarification.
The resonator basically mutes the sound of what your exhaust should basically sound like. If you installed that tip in the OP, then you would essentially be doing a 'resonator delete', because to install that, you would cut off your resonator and bolt/clamp on that new tip. The SLP 2.5" Dual tip and the Volant Super tips are both pretty much the same thing as you put in the OP also. They are just different grades of stainless steel, which is why the price difference (116 versus 250+) is so great. If you were to buy a tip replacement, i'd buy the slp or volant before your ebay one.

BAMA_LTZ_HOE has done this and a pic of his configuration can be found in this thread: http://www.tahoeyukonforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23322&page=4. He had an exhaust shop do the work but same result just a little cheaper than a Volant route and IMO still looks nice. Deleting that resonator definitely does look a lot better but as stated by Atomic will gain you nothing us other than cosmetic improvement and slightly different exhaust note. I plan doing the exact thing that BAMA did as soon as it gets a little warmer out.
I went to a custom shop but all their tips they keep in inventory were gross looking. Half hour labor plus the tip would cost around 70-80. So if you are 'ballin on a budget' then that is def the way to go. I'm gonna go the volant route.
