Default 2001 Camaro 3.8l 5speed True Dual Exhaust Ideas?

Hey everyone I was wanting to do a new exhaust set up on my car. I currently have a stock exhaust with just a flowmaster 44 series (single outlet) welded into the stock mufflers position. By all means it does not sound that bad at all, I only have a problem with the rasp which is why I am making this post. I know I will not be able to eliminate the rasp completely but I would like to go true duals. I wanted to get some recommendations from all you as what I should do. I am going for loud, but not if it is going to sound like a lawnmower with nos. Looking for a nice growl (or as close as I can get). Any recommendations?

Another thing I should add is im not trying to spend a ton of money. I was thinking since I want to go true duals, why not just dump it before the rear tires. I do not mind removing the cat either (Do those o2 simulation sensor things work for cat removal? Is it worth removing the cat?). What type of pipe size should I use (Not planning on boosting the car, just a cam/heads in future)? I am not married to the idea of side exit, I am open to all ideas!

You need to check to see what is legal in you area. In my area the exhaust must go past the passenger compartment. Since the camaro is a hatch back that means it must exit body perimeter.

Not sure what you are asking. If you know how to weld and have the equipment its a pretty simple job, If not you will need it done by a pro. It would be handy if you had it done at the place you get the car inspected (assuming you need inspection)

A set of headers will help with sound and make the DIY duals easier.

Check out your tube for sound bits. I had both flow master and magnaflow on my 3800. Flowmaster sounded better at low RPM but raspy over 2700 RPM. Magnaflow did not have the low end sound but it also was much less raspy.

What I am asking for is a exhaust set up. For example, magnaflow high flow cats, borla muffler. I am trying to find a great sound and I would rather take personal opinions from anyone. I would hate myself if I made a exhaust system that sounds like trash.
