Just my opinion.
Let me know if you need help finding a resonator. I have a 22" body resonator 28" as a whole Magnaflow(10436) and it made it so nice. Still loud but no nasty noises. Even the smallest Magnaflow resonator will get rid of the rasp and help the drone.

Magnaflow 10416 - 14" body>>20" whole. Smallest one
Magnaflow 10426 - 18" body>>24" whole. Mid
Magnaflow 10436 - 22" body>>28" whole. Biggest

On amazon.com they have all these for cheap. A shop will charge you triple for one.
100% agree with this statement. I am a huge advocate of magnaflow exhaust products, but with only a resonator you are going to get droned out to hell, I went with their resonated and mufflered (is that a word?) setup. My SVT is quiet enough for a long trip on the e-way, and gets nice and loud when I put my foot down. I need to make an exhaust clip when I get home from my business trip.
