Okay so the resonator is still in place but the drone is occurring. Maybe I have to double up on resonators?

Thanks for the advice. Do you know what could cause this w/ low miles. Given that It did not sit for more then 1 month, oil changed every 3k, and not driven hard ever.

Thanks for the advice. I'm reluctant to say anything major is wrong is blown head gasket because I only have 70000 miles. Having said that... I suppose in many cases mileage is trumped by bad luck.
