The lunchbox is the big box-looking thing at the end of your exhaust right before it comes out the back. Chop it off and have a pipe welded in it's place, and it will be louder; but without the cost of a cat-back.

but a catback only gives 1-2 hp on a good engine headers and intake are more worth the cost

i did it when i had my 01 hatch... go to a shop, have them cut off the resonator (lunchbox) and weld an S-pipe in... then go get urself a nice exhaust tip. Should be no more than $40 for the shop to do the job. And u can get a decent tip pretty cheap.
