Hey there, I'm new to the board too & have a wife like yours, lol. Initially,
Initially, I drilled my stock exhaust to 1/2". Look in the open in the back with a flash light. You'll see 2 little holes restricting sound. Bought a long drill bit from Walmart for $9. Since I must've done something good, my wife bought me a Freedom Pref curved. I haven't received it yet, but I also bought a Cobra Fi2000.
A guy I know put in the V&H slips and he's says he gets the pops during hard deceleration.he says he isn't annoyed by it yet so he hasn't bought a fuel computer.
A full exhaust like Road Burner is on eBay in the $300's. IMO, better alternative to slipons and the stock smaller headers.
