Are you really asking this? Really? Have you spent 10 minutes to search the topic or think about it yourself?

This a dumb question. An axle back does nothing for hp gains, just louder thats it. If you just want to be a ricer and have a muffler put on to make it "sound good" then the axle back is a good way to go. A good cat back and header is the only way to get good gains from the exhaust system. LOL 3" straight pipe I bet that is loud. I ran my B18b1 Civic around the block with just a header and open cat, no exhaust. It was loud as hell and sounded like a F1 race car.
