Stock exhaust modification

not knowledgeable about the exhaust system. Was wondering if I could add any aftermarket xpipe to the stock exhaust and does that make any difference on the performance or does it add any horsepower ?

Yes, you are able to pair aftermarket x-pipes with the factory rear section. If going catless, I'd recommend going for a tune to disable the CEL and you should see near 30whp gains. This is the only power you'll see out of this motor short of forced induction. Shoot me a PM for pricing on a tune

Check engine light.

Louder, yes, and it will more than likely drone

Check out our performance software information which will take care of the engine light and increase performance/smoothness:

Http://www.bpmsport.com/reviews.pdf

With a Catless setup and the stock read section in place, it's not too much louder than stock especially below 4,500 RPM.

It may drone slightly more but no where near as much with an aftermarket rear section.

Many of our customers do just the tune and test pipes, keeping the rest of the exhaust system stock, and are happy with the sound/gains.
