Most likely and probably not much better than it does right now. I'd go for a focus sport catback with a stealth muffler if you want a nice tip but not a real loud exhaust. If you like decently loud, I'd say MBRP or magnaflow. All of them should sound and perform better than what you have now. Either way, I really don't think it'd be worth it to try and return that exhaust to stock. Just get a cat back, you'll be happy.
