A new Tanabe Medalion Touring exhaust would would cost you at least $600 more. Is that price difference a deal breaker for you? I highly doubt that a new resonator and piping would cost you $600.
I have that exhaust and ended up replacing the stock resonator with a round Magna Flow resonator, 2.25 inch opening with a main body length of about 14 inches. It gave it lower, throatier and slightly less subdued sound. I really liked it and get even more compliments on it since the replacement.
If it was my decision, I would buy the exhaust and have a good muffler shop make the missing part with a longer resonator. I've tried 3 other exhaust systems and this is by far the the most pleasant sounding exhaust system. It's not as loud as others and in my opinion gives a much lower but pleasant growl.
