Lightbulb Help For Setting Up Exhaust System

First post!!! I have a 2012 2SS transformers edition camaro. I would like my camaro to be the loudest possible. (Of course I would like that deep rumble and not the ricer sound). So I've been looking thorought the forum and apparently straight pipes are the loudest (but not best sounding). So my question is what else can I combine with striaght pipes to make it even louder and meaner. Right now my car is stock. I also don't want the engine light to turn on or any other sensors. I am not gonna worry about a ticket because in my town in Missouri most of the cops have extremely loud trucks!

Thanks

Edit: I just got this car but I have been reading on the forum for a while. It's a picture from the dealer. Automatic. And I don't want a really annoying drone. To make it more clear I AM gonna straight pipe (axl back) but also want to do other hings to make the tone nicer and louder.

Full ARH exhaust with cutouts. Nice deep, loud sound then open the cutouts for those times you want it retarded loud and want to go deaf.

Just rethought my last post. For a stock car, a muffler delete is probably the best bang for your buck. You can get it done for about $100.00. It doesn't sound bad at all if you like the popping that comes with it. I had a muffler delete for 3 years and most people liked it.

Nice ride. Where in MO are you located? There are a few here in the St Louis metro area with different systems. I'm sure if you're close by you may be able to get some in person sound ideas.

Everyone is going to suggest what they have. There is an exhaust compilation thread in the V8 bolt on section which tons of different setups. You'll find one you'll like in there

Ok thanks and I am 2 hrs away from STL. Ok so last question. What would produce the loudest sound. Not talking about good quality or tone. Just loudness.

MUFFLER.DELETE without a doubt is the THE best bang for buck mod. It's easy enough to 'try' it out before dropping the cash on an exhaust.

Ok. Do you recommend just the rear mufflers? Or also the cats?
