It, by design, increases resistance. Whether more or less than a catalyst converter - can be argued.

My point - focus on how not to create the unwanted side-effect, rather than on how to fix it (by creating other side-effects).
Nope im sorry, resonators/silencers which are designed correctly will not slow exhaust gas's they can actually help smooth out the sound waves and there for let them move quicker. Keep it simple, look through a cat and youll see daylight , look through a resonator/silencersand youll see right through it. There is a really intresting video from magnaflow im sure explaing this and the science behind it.
