My 2cents: have it for 2yrs+ and that's the best mod i have done to any car to-date. Try going through tunnel and shift at redline, the result is ear-gasmic.

Without m-mode, it is only slightly louder than stock.

Wondering how loud this would be with Catless Downpipes.

Mainly concerned about cold start volume and highway drone.

I've got a guy near me willing to do it for $300-$400

No drone too, maybe a little if you are going 90( on cruise control) and going up a good incline. Hehe
did you end up going with 2 straight pipes?

Did the mod. Cost $400CAD ($310 USD, lol) definitely a difference as you can hear. Not straight pipe loud but a big improvement. Also the bottom of the muffler is a bit dinged up but better than the weld marks i saw on other mufflers. Will post vids shortly

You can tie them to the open position using thin gauge wire from HD or Lowes. It's effective and not affected by heat cycling.

Thanks. But, that's my video above. I went ahead and did the exhaust mod. Much louder, but not insane.
