I started up my car when I was doing the exhaust and ran it with an open cat. It sounded horrid. With a straight pipe it sounds exactly like my 2.4L Neon racecar.

i will agree its extremely obnoxious, haha but i absolutely love it! The sound inside while driving is to much when there are other people in the car, so i will be getting a performance muffler to calm it down a little!

Pretty cool for race car sound but just a little much for the street I think and I like loud but not quite that much for DD.

full on straight pipe, is waaayy too redneck even for me :P besides Its been tested and proven you can get more power through Mufflers then straight pipe (depending on the type of muffler)
