Default drone with no cats?

for anyone who has this on their car:

got a 04 GT with stock 2 front cats, removed rear cats, and 2 magnaflow oval mufflers(dont know exact part number, i bought the car like this)

i was thinking, cuz whoever did the cat/pipe swap did a ****ty job, would be to get a whole new front section done from manifolds to mufflers with no cats and just nuts for front 02 sensors(rears are turned off with a Diablo tune)

as it is now, there is like no drone in the car and i LOVE that ahah, but i wouldnt mind having the car a little louder but still dont want drone.

soo i figure the cheapest rout for more sound would be catless front section(with either an X or H, whatever ones gives less drone) but worried might be the annoying drone with no cats

OR

new high flow cats to replace the stock ones as well as piping to mufflers


just looking for opinions of people who has this setup or something very similar.

thanks
Dean
