    ive seen the TSP TD setup with the mufflers, but would gain as much HP if you just went straight pipes all the way back?

    I believe I read somewhere that the TSP setup would be better than strait pipes due to the x-pipe, geting better scavenging effects or something of that nature.

    while the x will make more power, straight pipes will make rather close numbers

    Is it a daily driver or a weekend warrior? If it's a DD then I would go with mufflers, if not then how loud it is isn't going to matter.

    That is generally how I feel too, seeing as everything is loud in a convertible anyway!
