There's a huge difference between muffler-less, back-firing, irritating loudness and the sweet performance sound of properly-dampened headers...
I am sure your car sounds great! Your previous posts clearly show your prowess in the world of motorsport, and you certainly have my respect. I do plan on getting catless headers when I can, at which time I will be getting a Borla XS or similar muffler, maybe a resonator and a proper tune. For now, the car isn't overly obnoxious but sounds great to me and is perfectly tolerable. Thanks for your input, it is greatly appreciated.

Nice! Are you going to go with a Borla system then or leave your straight pipe (that will be LOUD)

Just for fun, I am going to leave it straight. But if it is overbearing, I have a cheap high-flow muffler ready to go on.
