Default Yet Another Exhaust Question

Now i know A LOT of this is opinion based answers, but i have a 02 Limited Edition Monte, with 3.8L V6. I have Flowmaster Series 40 Mufflers on my car already. I would like a little more noise, a louder noise, a rumble at a idle would be nice. How would i go about doing this? I understand its only a v6 not a v8 so i wont get the same sound but anyway what can i do to make my Monte louder?

You can remove the mufflers and resonator and put straight pipe... Like turbo said above it will make it super raspy around the 3000 rpm range... Idle sounds nice with no mufflers and no resonator but sounds like crap when driving. Take it from a guy that has this setup. (Note that I have a ZZP downpipe also) Heres a vid of my car with that setup:

just go with a shorter resonator, that way you limit the drone and rasp
