Default Exhaust help

I drive a 2012 base model mini Cooper and want to straight pipe it... What would be the best size pipe and will it mess up my motor life? And how much performance will I lose and gain

Don't do it. Please. For our ears. Buy a full catback system for best scavenging and performance.

Yes I agree with Powershift. Though it may sound totally wicked at first, i'm sure that will get old real fast. Just save up and get a quality aftermarket exhaust system.

I have a 2008 S and wanting to change exhaust. I listened to as many youtube videos demoing the available cat backs. My question is can I not just change just the muffler with a performance muffler (borla etc.) rather than replace all from the cat back. What is gained by the full cat back. I am mostly interested in a good sound than more performance.
