Shouldn't be an issue. I've talked to people with straight pipes, and they say its not much louder than stock, unless they floor it..

If you get on it it can be pretty loud, but drive it normal and it'll be comparable with any 12v.

Cutting out the muffler only will not give you a big noise difference, unless you take th cat out to.
