I'm installing my new cai and i want to keep the resonator on (for looks) but don't think it has any point. I've read to hollow them out, but after taking it off, and looking inside, it is already pretty much hollow, so, how do i keep it on but not actually use it? Do i run pipe from the intake, through the resonator, then to the throttle body? and what about the sensor on the resonator, how do i deal with that?

One way or another the two vacuum lines must have access to the vacuum of the intake, whether it’s in the box or in a tube.
If you run a tube through the box you must still connect the vacuum lines to that tube in some fashion.

I'm running my engine without the resonator after my True Flow CAI install.

I figure it like this:

1) It retains heat that doesn't help underhood temps and heat soaks the coils
2) If I cut it up, I have to purchase another one when trade-in time comes -- and trade-in time always comes sooner or later.
