It's highly recommended to use a small straight thru resonator in place of the cat to mitigate the rasp. I've got a 97 E300 sitting around right now with a straight pipe in place of the cat and can literally demonstrate how **** it sounds.
THAT is exactly my problem, a nasty rasp. So, is the cause my aftermarket catalytic converter, or my aftermarket resonator and muffler?

If you can take a video of it that would be great. Thanks!

I can advocate to that annoying rasp, literally sounds like a fart can on an old honda in those rpm ranges.
