So my winter car is a 97' probe gt. It is really loud, but I want to make it even louder & want to get it straight piped.

How would I go about doing this?

take it to a mechanic and say you want to straight pipe your exhaust, or go to a muffler shop and ask them for a straight pipe that would fit your car. It should be pretty cheap. I wouldn't pay anything over $150 for a basic straight pipe installation and cost of materials.

Just cut out your mufflers / cats and replace them with pipe. i would do it myself, it's not that hard to do. If you just want it loud, run open headers.

Not that you probably care, but if it's too loud you'll get pulled over constantly and a ticket for having no CAT is very expensive.

A mechanic will NOT straight pipe a car for you unless it's not road registered due to the fact that it's not legal unless its a desiel. Your best bet would be to do it yourself. Take lengths, and buy and cut stainless steel pipes of the same diameter to the correct lengths the use sleeves to attach them.

Open headers will make it so you can't even hear your radio on full blast.

Most mechanics will straight pipe your car. If they are a chain shop with multiple locations they most likely won't, but if it's a 1 off they will. I've had a lot of shops do some less then legal modifications to my vehicles, as well as friends and families vehicles.

Go to a close by muffler shop and they will do it, should not be too expensive but i would make sure it's not crazy loud, depending on where you live you might get pulled over a lot.

Also, prepare to be profile'd by police and financially stable for a lot of tickets. Cops always target loud cars that aren't considered "muscle cars". For instance, cops love to pull over riced out Hondas, BMW's, Nissans, etc. while they won't pull over a Mustang, Camaro, or Challenger cuz they know even the stock exhaust roars.
