I think here is a better way seen that you want to generate a c code. 
Proceed as you do, once you have the result res call compile on that - 
make a compiled function.

cf=Compile[{{balh,blah,blah}}, Evaluate[res]]

The compiler internally calls Experimental`OptimizeExpression[res]

Then, you can use Export to export the compiled function to C; then you'd 
have to write a C wrapper to call that function.

Have a look at
