If your exhaust is bolted together, and those are BBK LT headers, that link I posted with the catted X-Pipe from BBK will bolt right up. The cats with straight pipes might quiet it down enough? You might end up having to get a set of mufflers? If you like loud, check out Borla Stingers.
If you want to avoid putting cats on keep the straight pipes then put on a set of mufflers. I am running no cats to Borla touring mufflers on my 05'. It is not that loud at idle. Cruising gets a bit loud, with a lot more drone than running cats. It is probably half the drone you have with your straight pipes. When I stomp on it; itís LOUD. I did pass the sound check at inspection. If you do decide to run no cats, I would run one of the quieter mufflers. No cats and mufflers such as Borla Stingers will put you in the same position.
