if it is truly power that you are looking for and not sound, maybe you should look into getting a chip instead.

Supersprint has a header back system....

Most exhaust systems give you very little power gains and that is why more people focus on quality, sound, and weight than HP figures.

If you are looking for more power then the header back systems are the only way to go as a cat back is going to do very little for you with the stock cats still on. Not that I promote removing the cats.
