Question Muffler isn't loud enough, what next? Resonator delete?

So I recently went in to have the much hated muffler delete done on my G. The shop calls me at work and tells me the technician thinks it's so loud that I won't like it. He says, our options are, we can make a downpipe where we disconnected the muffler, and just have it dump there, create a custom Y-pipe to split from there to the rear (muffler still deleted, "most expensive option"), or, put on a flowmaster 40 series just to get down some of the noise.

Trusting the tech, I decided to go with the muffler option. I have now had the car 2 days, and I have mixed feelings about the sound. On one hand, I LOVE the way it effected the pitch/note. The sound is still the classic G sound but throatier and deeper. I have few complaints with the WAY it sounds, the issue is the volume. The muffler is admittedly louder than stock, but it really just doesn't scream like I wanted? I guess maybe I have high tolerance for exhaust? To me this is pretty quiet, when a 40 series is supposed to be one of the louder Flowmaster options!

My question is what should I try next? Since they installed the muffler, it would suck to now go for a muffler delete again, and lose the money I spent to have this work done. It is an option, but more of a plan B. My current idea is to put a straight pipe in place of the resonator, while leaving the Flowmaster on the back. I THINK this will keep the desired sound, but give it the volume I am looking for. What do other G owners think?? Anyone with Flowmaster set-ups on their Z or G, what do you think?



***I realize some of the stupid aspects of my story, I am very young and just love cars, and just got to a point where I can do modification to my car with my income. Please don't give me too much crap.***
