Regret buying a shelf exhaust.. time for custom!

So after having my fujitsubo legalis r cat back installed for about 1k miles with a hytech replica header, i'm starting to get annoyed that spent $600 or 2db and little to no performance. Don't get me wrong, it has a nice tone, but i'm wanting more.

I've decided to go the custom rout. I realize that 3" piping will yield the highest gains, but noise levels are an issue for me, so i'll go with 2.5" piping from Kteller. I plan on running a vibrant resonator, but am stuck on which to buy. Have any of you run the vibrant ultra quiet resonator and had problems being lowered? It has a much larger diameter than the bottle style resonator and i just have concerns with the lip on it, it looks like it could catch on less than perfect roads. For the muffler, i'll run a vibrant flat black dual tip. I don't want my exhaust to be much louder than the greddy evo2 so would one resonator suffice, or should i go with two (ultra quiet)?

Also, if you guys know of any other reputable sources for stainless exhaust piping, let me know!

I want to know about the Vibrant exhaust too. The previous owner of my lude cooked the exhaust letting the engine run hot
