Would it keep what noise? IMHO i consider a 3A racing muffler a fart can, and im guilty of having one on my old car, straight piped to it. Which is why i went with a tsudo catback for the balt and i recommend that for everyone. But my 3A racing muffler was loud.

In regards to horsepower, putting an aftermarket header and muffler on will increase it because they are less restrictive than the stock parts and will increase the flow of the exhaust.

just to make sure. You are going to have a new resonator put in, a new muffler put on, and possibly all new piping for the custom cat back? how much is that going to run you do you think? bc i got a tsudo N1 online shipped for just under 200$ and its bolt on, no cutting and diy.

Yeah, I'm definitely happy with my investment in the Tsudo. It's easy to install, has a good sound, and looks nice as well. I would say go for that rather than just a muffler...

eh i like the tsudo but i think it sounds like a fart can... i had the 3a muffler and to me it sounded tone but i hated the look. I now have a magnaflow 2.5inch catback and it sounds amazing! its tone and quiet, so no constant humm on the highway or anything. and you can actually feel it a little unlike the 3a weld on haha

I assume straight pipe means without a cat, without a resonator, and without a muffler.

What theyre talking about is having this ^ , vs having that ^ with the pipe going straight back.

Though its not possible to have piping without bends to conform to the car, bc the way the car is designed, the piping has to follow a specific route to be out of the way and under the heat shields that are placed on the underbody.
