You will definitely want mufflers. Straight pipes will sound horrible.

get mellow toned mufflers and 2.25 inch pipe all the way back. For tips go with stainless steel polished only. Try to get a set that is at least 10 inches long by 2.5 inches (no more than 3 inches) and have the shop angle them up for you else they will look pointed down (when even with the ground they look pointed down)

there are tons of muffler choices, you could just buy a GT take off set and have it put on (fabrication required) and if you dont like that get some mufflers you like as everyones opinions differ.

Re: Dual Straight Pipes sound ok?

haha, I'm telling you, I wasn't sure Borla was the way to go... and then I found a PAIR of mufflers for $50. I bought them, installed them along with some 4" tips, and HOLY HELL... simply amazing sound. I drove around for a day just because it sounded so awesome. People 2 blocks away are turning to hear the awesome low growl coming their way... and no, it isn't loud, not even at WOT, just incredible Borla awesomeness.
