Default Exhaust System

My '95 SSE still has the original exhaust system from the factory. It hasn't rusted at all. However, I'm thinking of replacing it this summer. What parts (catalytic and muffler) are recommended? I noticed the new SSEIs have a dual muffler system. What'* the advantage of having a dual muffler system like the STS has? What about the pipe diameter? What kind of performance gains can I expect from either a better system (cat. and single muffler) or a dual muffler system? Thanks.

Dual mufflers on our car won't do too much. A single muffler with dual outlets is nice though. As for a whole exhaust workover, it wouldn't be to advised, cause you end up losing a lot of low end power unless you have significant mods done.
