I assume to keep the "stock" look and retain the hangers?

It is essentially the same thing. The only benefit I see is the ability to retain the OEM look; however, the OE muffler is heavy so I would def want to ditch it altogether. I actually just cut the muffler right before the can and welded on two straight sections of pipe with new tips and I can't believe how good it sounds. Def a little loud, but manageable considering there is 4 cats and 2 resonators. I have to get some pics/sound clips up.
