Y Pipe into H Pipe?

Hey guys, I know there is a massive thread already on dual exhaust conversion for the V6, but there really isn't any information specifically tailored to what I need. Currently I have a stock exhaust system, aside from the axle back. Shortly in a few weeks my GT style rear bumper will be coming in and this means dual exhaust. My question lies in whether or not I can buy a GT catted H pipe, with a little fabrication, and it will fit on my V6. If this is possible, aside from the H pipe what else will I need, a Cat Back exhaust system? Maybe straight pipe it all the way back? I'm also concerned whether or not removing the cats and resonators will make my car sound like ****. Loudness I don't mind, I just don't want it to sound like trash. Thanks in advanced everyone.

The Flowmaster mufflers made a droning noise inside the car at highway speed so I got a set of stock GT mufflers and put on it. It didn't sound quite as good outside, but sounded much better inside. I like the sound better than a X pipe.
No, I got the pipes off of a GT and used the old V6 pipe to make the H pipe. I cut the bends out of the old pipe that I needed to make the Y pipe into a H pipe and welded it together. Then attached the GT pipes and used the driver's side hangers from the GT. If you look at the pictures you will see where I welded everything together. I wish I had taken more pictures, but I didn't think of it at the time. These pipes are made of 409 stainless steel, so it's best to TIG weld them with stainless wire.
