resonator vs straight pipe


I have an 02 7.3 with a 5" turbo back ( the standard 4" dp, 5" rest )
It has a resonator towards the back, wondering if its worth it to chop it off or not. obviously louder, but any power gains? will it smoke more or less ( not looking to make any more or less just curious if it changes), any cons to doing so? or is a little back pressure good to have.

Thanks for your time.

It wouldnt make much difference I would think on your setup with sound. Smoke wouldnt be a changing factor. It may be the slightest bit louder. Dont worry about back pressure as the turbo itself is enough.
