Time for a new exhaust and I want a little more growl than what I was getting with a supposedly loud Walker muffler.
The exhaust guys suggest all pipe, no muffler.........

What do the Sages says??? Would going no muffler have hidden problems.......throw off back pressure that effects O2 sensor or gas mileage??

You would quickly draw the attention of your local police for noise and if smog laws apply, it would not pass. The O2 sensor does not work off back-pressure. However, it might not get hot enough to function as necessary. An incorrect O2sensor reading would affect your gas mileage.

I'm a cheap asshat and only use Craigslist Flowmasters on my Mitsubishi's. Haven't paid more than $30 for one. And they are built to last.
