I have no idea I don't have the amuse exhaust but I recently purchased a Tracy sports dual which is similar and the resonator is oval

My Dual Euro 70mm has the oval resonator:

Thanks Feezy! Looks like the newer exhausts are coming with that resonator. I had been talking with a vendor and they said Amuse would build them without resonators as well if we requested. Not sure how the Euro would sound without one. Trying to justify selling my Urge exhaust already, I love that it doesnt drone but I think it sounds TOOO mean and angry. I want that more refined sound

I know andrewhakes euro was probably the most recently purchased on the forum and he got the rectangle resonator but those are the ones that seem to get the problem rattle.
I found this pic from a vendor on the board in the U.K(sept. 2015 posting) saying its for an ap1 but I dont think that there is any difference with the ap2(or maybe this is the difference??)

but most of the things we see are these ones
My exhaust has the oval resonator. Honestly I would assume that any Ti exhaust has the possibility of having a resonator rattle issue. There is just a massive amount of vibration that this particular portion of the exhaust experiences so it is likely a bit difficult to avoid.

If you purchase the exhaust, leave it the way it is. It has the OEM hembolts resonator and the larger resonator, both in the OEM positions.

The exhaust is specifically tuned to have a cat of some sort in front of it. With the OEM cat it is very refined and controlled, think Mugen AP1 only a little bit more exotic sounding. With a HFC it's louder, but has the same style of sound, with a tiny bit of the titanium rasp at the upper RPMs until the exhaust is warmed up. With a test pipe the exhaust is loud, raspy, and obnoxious. I'll never run it in this configuration. It's more important to me to have a car that sounds good, and that I can drive into work without looking/sounding like a clown than the extra 3hp a test pipe is going to give me.

I don't think so. Once of these days I will get around to taking pictures.
