That resonator is pretty small, I don't think it would make much difference. The Magnaflow muffler is a small, straight-through design, it's almost like driving without a muffler. (the larger the the more sound it absorbs)
I know what you mean, I like sporty sound, but got tired of loud exhausts.

Its raspy sounds annoyed me, so if I install back my resonator it will lessen the noise a bit?

It should eliminate some of the high pitched sounds, that's what resonators are for, but it's small so it may not make a big difference.
