Actually, the center chamber is the resonator, and the rear section is the muffler. The resultant exhaust note wasn't too bad, but it had a drone at 3000 rpm. I decided to replace the center chamber with a Magnaflow #14214, cutting both nipples to half length at a muffler shop. The inlet bend was cut off and replaced with a bent piece of new pipe swedged to the original inlet pipe. A new tailpipe was custom bent using the original hangers, and swedged to accept a 2.5 inch chromed slash cut tip. Total cost including welding was $142. Sound is now low and mellow, quite similar to a Lotus,or the old ATS four cylinder Ferrari designed engine cool:

Exactly what is the difference between resonator and muffler? It's all about making the exhaust quiet, or not?
