go for it, whenever you go to a sport exhaust, you will lose a little 
torque, but not much, unless you put on a 3" muffler. You get better 
breathing on the hwy and better gas mileage, esp. if your old exhaust is 
plugged. Put on a 2.25" muffler and you should be all set. A good shop can 
tune the sound for you w/ tips or center muffler. That's why the scorpion 
exhausts are so expensive. They're specific ready-to-go kits that are 
bolt-on and tuned for proven exhaust note. Plus it's polished stainless. 
Stainless is the way to go unless you live in Arizona...
