12 SEL exhaust ?

Hey all I put in a flowmaster dual out muffler on today. I was going to run without a muffler but I didn't like the pinging noise. I still have both resonators on. I like the low tone to the engine BUT it sounds very smooth not so much like an engine. (Sorry hard to explain) what usually happens when the most rear resonator is removed and straight pipe is installed going to the muffler? I really don't like the LOUD exhaust found on most import tuners.

Let me try to get a clip up of mine, I have the same muffler but with 2.5" pipe from the cat back to the muffler. It is a bit ricey, I'll warn you now.
