Good: lowers exhaust noise level and interior resonance.
Bad: may slightly disturbs the smooth exhaust flow.
No HP and TQ.

it depends on how much you want to cut the noise. there are more free flowing resonators than others. the wrx resonator makes the exhuast gases swirl around which is fine and some aftermarket ones are straight-through which doesn't lose any power either.

All the inline resonators that I've seen are straight-through. Resonators usually have larger diameter than the factory midpipe, so exhaust gas will lose some velocity inside the resonator. However, exhaust gas will gain back most of its velocity as it leaves the resonator.
