I am building a custom exhaust myself and I'm not sure how it will sound.
You have two options to make it slightly louder:
1. You can always gut out the stock cat and get a bit more noise.
2. Have a muffler shop open up the stock muffler and remove one of the baffles. Here is a picture that I put together (from the web) that you might find it useful.
