Question about exhaust on 06 silverado.

I may be in the wrong place for this but maybe there is someone here that can answer my question.

I have a 2006 regular cab 2wd 1500 Silverado, 5.3 V8. I currently have a strait pipe running from the cats back to a Y pipe then turned down. The thing I donít like about it is its not loud enough and deep enough at idle, or any time really. I want as loud and deep of a tone as I can get. Iíve heard other trucks around this model that you can feel the deep rumble in your chest, and mine doesnít have that. I want to turn it into true duals and I want to put mufflers on to get the tone that I like, but if I do that Iím afraid it will make it too quiet.

Here is my question. If I take the cats off and run dual pipes would this help about the overall sound volume? And is it possible to take the cats off of this model of truck? I have heard that if you take them off it will take the O2 sensors out and mess everything up. Is there a way around this?

I gaurantee that you cannot remove IM related parts in your state, look it up on your states DMV website, emissions section. Then decide what you can do to make noise.
