The product is Side effects I just don't think they make them that are functional though. Here's a car that has them on.

The Side Effects side pipes are very expensive in my opinion. Upwards of $1400 that's not counting paint. They say they are functional and sound about like straight pipes but they provide some with baffles or without.

I just remember calling them a while back when I first got my car.

Yup, that's the guys I did my research with. It's a lot quicker to call them, personally.

I have these pipes on my 93.
They are functional and sound good.
Just enough bark and not too much bite.
The set that was put on mine (It was done before I bought it) also came with a set of filler plates for the back of the car to fill in where the pipes used to come out.

The only two downsides I've seen/heard so far:
1. You really have to watch yourself over speed bumps and driveway approaches.
2. Make sure that the person who puts a battery in knows what they are doing. The person who owned the car before me had a battery put in the car and the installer, rather than figuring out that the pipe and shroud needed to be dropped to get the lower bolt out of the side panel just pulled on it to bed it out of the way. As they say "Sadly Now There Can Be But One Outcome"
