Just get a high flow cat
Where the muffler is isn't a concern of where the sound comes from. As long as you have it all expel from behind the car, that's where the sound will come from. The closer the muffler is to the end, the raspier the sound will be and louder. This being because the sound doesn't have as far to travel so it doesn't "deaden" out. Sometimes people add resonators with straight pipes so it doesn't sound so raspy and race like but if you keep the cats, a res delete and new muffler will be the way to go

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
