So you want to delete your cats, leave the stock x-pipe and get a muffler? Why don't you get an x-pipe also?

Don't know much about exhausts lol...I just heard the full race exhaust from RPi and it "rings" a bit...I heard this was due to the X-Pipe...

I already have the RPi Axle Back exhaust, I want it a bit louder...

Both, but sound is more important between the two. The car is plenty fast...how much do you think the additional sec 1 pipe would add
in terms of HP/sound with stock x-pipe?

To be honest, you'd probably want an x-pipe first. Granted that going 'catless' will yield you more power but I think it might sounds like total shit with the stock x-pipe. I'm not sure but that's my theory. I'd go with any reputable brand for the x-pipe as well as a catless section 1. Preferably gintani or aa. By the way, going catless will throw CELs (check engine lights on the dash) so make sure you're aware of that. You'll need a tune to get rid of the cel. AA's new HFCs (not as loud as catless and yields a bit less power) don't throw cels!
