Y resonator? WTH

Finally actually looked at my 530's exhaust when doing brakes. WTH is up with it? That Y gimick is huge. No wonder the exhaust is silent. I don't really like the magnaflow system... it's OEM basically. I've had exhaust shops build some decent exhausts on domestic muscle cars. I may have a local shop build me something. But I don't want drone, and I only want a bit of noise. Basically a OEM performance exhaust.

My thoughts: pick up new pipe at the two flanges and run it into a Y. then run a thru muffler in the mid section for drone control and put a magnaflow muffler at the end. Keep the pipe size 2.25" or 2.5". Thoughts? I like my quiet hwy car, but a bit of good noise would be nice and not to mention something lighter and more straight thru would be nice.
