You can expect horrible accoustic results if you use a Magnaflow muffler with no resonator. They're not designed to operate without one. Going to a larger diameter pipe by itself will increase your exhaust noise by itself, so you'll get louder. The resonator is mostly there to control tone, not so much volume. The Magnaflow is primarily to control volume, not tone.
If you want to try, go ahead and get the pipes W/O resonator from VRS. You can always have a local muffler shop weld in a $20 resonator if you don't like the sound.
