I have the MBRP. It is stainless mandrel bent 2.25in and works great. However, if you are wanting turbo or big cams, etc. later, I would recommend going ahead and getting 2.5in exhaust. It will cost $10-20 more up front, but will save you from having to replace it all later.

well alot of people will say, myself included, that the borla has a nice and mellow deep tone, that is defintely not annoying. I would say go with that, I have it and love it.

the round muffler systems will fit no problem, be careful on the oval muffler systems, they might have clearance issues with the gas tank.

You have to cut the factory out, period. UNLESS you take apart your drivers rear suspension.

There is no way to get it out with out a cut due to the size of the cat/muffler/resonator.

All aftermarket systems come in two or three pieces due to shipping and fitment issues. I did NOT cut my Borla at all, it came like that.
