Most places will not allow you to use a straight pipe. The catalytic converter is used to cut down on emissions which is against most government regulations and is a ticketable offence in Canada.

Is straight pipes louder than a glass pack?

straight pipes are louder than glass packs at first, glass packs have glass wool inside to help muffle the sound, when the glass wears out they get louder, it also depends on the length of the glass pack. if you get glass packs, you can run the car for awhile and shut it down and then spray water in the pipe, it will break down the glass, it might not be as loud as straight pipes but it will give you a better even sound versus straight pipes, I have both and done both.
