Headers are part of it. Go to a duel exhaust with a high performance muffler. It'll actually improve your gas mileage as well.

Opening the exhaust will give it a better rumble, that includes adding headers. What's the size of the pipes?

Hooker headers with about a 2 1/2 - 3" collector and pipes to match. The key to efficiency and added horsepower is free flow through the system. You might even want to consider opening up some more down the road with performance heads. Alot can be done to gain HP and sound without giving up on quality of ride.
