Straight piping the exhaust?

Hey everyone! My '98 OBW with 2.5 is running fine, though I have to wonder how much additional power I can gain by removing the cat and straight piping through maybe one can, rather than what exists now. I'm living in Saudi Arabia where emissions are talked about, but it's little more than lip service , so that's not an issue. What about retaining engine performance? Will removing the back pressure cause the engine to run any rougher/louder than it already does? Has anyone tried this? What about exhaust note?
it will definiatly be louder and throatier...possibly. it all really depends on the car. with some cars, if you remove the cat, they sound mean and beefy. other, on the other hand, sound like a lawn mower.

ALso if you are nuking the cat you better chop out all that other crap and put on a higher flow muffler or really you aren't doing much.
