ok so 3 days ago, i went to a buddys muffler shop to get some airleaks fixed, while i was there i had my buddy fab up some straight pipes that exited just behind the front doors on each side. holy crap! this thing sounded like an old school muscle car! LOL i wish i had a chance to get soundclips. after i got them on i took a 45min drive back to my house, i couldnt stand them! it brought drone to a whole new level. lol iv been driving with them for 2 days and i just put my magnaflow cat-back back on this morning. so for any of you thinking about straight piping your T, be prepared for some major drone, a drop in mpg's (i went from 17/18 with mf, to 14 with the straight pipes), and a major loss of torque. but hey it sounds great on start up lol just thought id share

thanks for the info, I always been wanting to go w/ dual exiting on each side before the tires. Try doing an h or x pipe or dual glasspack to see if the results change....

yeah i wanted to do that also, he was able to fit it on the gas tank side cause these things are only like 2 feet long lol they came out below my driver and passenger doors. i was thinking about doing dual glass packs for fun or two little single chamber fm's, but the pipes are so short, id have to start all over again... and i have a feeling i wouldnt get em for free the second time :D lol
