It was a link of search results for straight pipe. I didn't want to do the typical "search" so I did it for you. You just have to look through the results. I click on it and it works fine though.

Didn't really find anything helpful about if it would be good to do to my car or not.

It'll defiitly help free up the exhuast. More free flowing. I did my 99.5 before I got my cutsom exhaust done. I loved the sound. I just kept the stock downpipe and went 2 1/4 back from that.

i have a 01 with testpipe stock downpipe to a GHL catback i think the pipping is 2.5 or 2.75. It is very loud and sets alarms off everywhere. Well worth it frees it up alot and YES definitely will get you pulled over

I never got pulled over once when I had my car straight piped.. Not even with my new exhaust. I guess im just lucky :)

its straight piped to a muffler at the back, it used to be completely straight piped but got a ticket within a week so i put a muffler on

i've had my 01 straight piped with stock cat since january this year and it's not loud enough to get pulled over...but i have set off a car alarm or 2

my 3" strait pipe exhaust is loud, obnoxious, and fun as hell to drive around with. but i get pulled over about 2 times a week. so i keep the magnaflow on so i don't have to keep going through switching the muffler and strait pipe everyweek..

crazy enough, my car drones less on the freeway with the strait pipe on as opposed to the race muffler. but that's about the only time it's quieter

it will sound like this if you do a cat back with no mufflers...

Screw the straight pipe, I am just running a cat-less/open down-pipe with nothing.. now that is loud as ****

I have a 2.5" stainless straight pipe from the turbo back with a magnaflow 14815 at the tip and its pretty loud..but thats because of the magnaflow.
Do a 2.5"-3" straight pipe with no exhaust at the end just pure piping...sounds good you can see clips on youtube
