You certainly won't be bolting them on and going like others, now have to address a rear spring swap to install.

The EGR only operates during warm-up so doesn't affect performance anyway.

How about leaving the exhaust and EGR delete on the car and moving to a different state? Haha!

Even better - get a T/A that is 1975 or older and avoid smog concerns altogether...

I like the Pypes systems myself. Have had several 2nd gens over the years with many different exhaust styles, straight, H, and X. Had Flowmasters, Magnaflow, Borla, and Pypes mufflers also. Also, makes a difference with or without headers as far as how it may sound also. Have had headers, original log manifolds and RARE manifolds that have been mentioned earlier. With stock manifolds I don't think there is too much difference, but I will say out of all the mufflers the Flowmasters were my least favorite, drone being the big issue at cruising rpm's.

The best all around sound I had was with the RARE manifolds, Pypes Streetpro mufflers, and x pipe. 2.5 inch system. That is my opinion, and it was loud enough, but not too loud. I do not like my muscle car to sound like an old 4x4 with cherry bombs, but I do like a nice v-8 rumble.
For a completely bolt in system, I think it's a smart idea, incorporating the spring perch. Makes use of existing mount locations...interesting I think. I'd be curious to see how they fair in the long term!!

Are you doing a similar flush mount design that gets used for flush mounting the glass with square tubing welded in place?

Jack, its the complete series, I got it in bluray. I think it was something like $50.  Maybe something like 30 discs, with a few episodes on each disc. Like you I will watch a couple a week. Should last for the next year or so.
