If you plan on just welding a universal muffler onto your stock piping, you won't see much in power gains. I can't say on sound because most universal mufflers sound like crap, but not all. Getting the larger custom piping will give you more performance and deeper sound. If you're really worried about it, spend the extra money on a Greddy or Tanabe cat-back. You'll be much happier.
