Hack that sucker!!! I never did on my BMW (hopefully soon..) but I used to build VW GTI's and that was always one of this first things to go... You will see more high-end power... Just be sure to get everything lined up properly (are you going to hollow them and put back on, or are you going to fabricate something)

I just planed to just go down to a buddies show and have him put some new exhaust from the header back to a muffler and thats it cause I know it realy won't cost me a whole lot but that was my big question about back presure cause I have heard some things about that and wasn't sure I still kind of new to this whole 4cyl thing lol.

I think that the back pressure will be fine as long as you run like a 2.25" pipe from header back, dont go too crazy with making the exhaust system too large, may risk loosing torque..
