You've got a turbo. The less back pressure the better. It allows the turbo to spool quicker. That's why the T guys go with a 3" exhaust.

The only issue i see as possible would be the heat under the passenger floor. Doesn't really matter though because that area's already shielded for the exhaust path. Not like any of us have friends that ride with us anyway...

They pretty much covered it up there, but to reiterate, it's really, really, really loud.

It will make you smile big and your ears bleed, or at least ring.

Loud isnt' the only issue. Exhaust gases getting into the car is number one concern. I was told you don't want the pipe to end under the car at all. Idling sometime you may get a car full of deadly gases.

What about gioing 3" straight back to a rear exit? Is an aftermarket muffler not installed AFTER the axle anyways, could always add it later. I may try this when I go 3", it'll all have to be new exhaust anyways, whats an extra 18" of pipe worth, if it's too much, just throw in a muff. in place of some pipe

Hole through the hood and an up pipe. Or, hole in the fender and sideways pipe.

Then lend the car to someone you don't like. They'll be all "OH NOEESS!!11" as a cloud of exhaust + oil enter the cabin, tenderly caressing his lungs internally.
