    YES!!!
    And it makes your car sound like sh_t!!!
    There is one out here that runs high 10's with straight pipes and all ANYONE says when they talk about it is how bad it sounds! And when I say bad I mean as in terriable,not bad as in good.
    All that resonanting is nasty like some glasspacks.
    Your going to loose much exhaust volocity by having straight pipes. If you think of it as hydraulics it might make it easier for you to understand.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
