Default Where to buy SS resonators?

Hello all. Whew, the project is finally coming together. Flanges have been ordered, and an appointment at Scott's Muffler here in NC is finalized. I'll finally be able to put on that Perrin axleback and see how it works. However, I'm going to go ahead and try the exhaust without a resonator, see if I can't stand it. If it works out to where I do believe I'll need one, I can have them add it in at a later date. So, what companies made a really good stainless steel resonator? Where online can I buy?

The reason I ask is that the place where I'm having my exhaust done would charge about 80 bucks plus labor for their resonator, and as it is, the custom job is about killing my bank account (college student.) So for future reference, where should I look when it comes to a resonator? Thanks guys!

axelback = muffler right? does just a muffler upgrade improve performance that much or do you already have upgraded exhaust to being with?

Yes, I already have a custom exhaust done. It's 2.25 catback. However, the muffler was a universal POS, and I love the look of the dual tip, and wanted something namebrand for the hell of it. Therefore, Perrin it was. I'll be having a custom midpipe built to connect. Axleback isn't just a muffler. It's also about 2 feet or so of piping that comes off from the muffler and hooks up with whatever midpipe.

I'd get a perferated core glasspack from Summit. They are inexpensive and come in a variety of sizes and lengths.
