So for shits and giggles I took off my exhaust on my Honda, and it sounds pretty good :) so I'm thinking about getting a straight pipe made up from where I've unbolted it, if I do this am I going to lose much/any power? Cheers

Feels more responsive and quicker down low but definatly slower at highway speeds-takes longer to get from 80-110/130, but still not sure if the noise is worth the hassle...

less weight so you are almost on stage 2 performance and your handling will improve

Haha that was really well done, you must have some time on your hands! Got the straight pipe made up today and just threw it on, car is much better than it was before (no exhaust from rear suspension back) it's a bit quieter, much the same as a cannon I guess but minus the gayness, going to see how it goes for a week or 2 and if I don't like it I'll re weld the old exhaust back on.
