Remember, you will loose low end power w/the SS resonator(debatable, but I've seen both on a dyno), and even more w/the straight pipe(dyno proven loss of about 10hp on the low end). Good for the track, not good for the street.

just my $0.02 worth.

Thanks, guys. With the Supersprint muffler, what do you think the noise difference will be with or without the center resonator? The straight pipe is 50 bucks cheaper, but it could be a case of penny-wise, pound foolish with respect to sound. Will it be intolerable on the street? The car is a around-town runner and weekend toy, and will not be tracked.
