I have chrome megaphone pipes on my buggy now they look and sound cool but they dominate the drive  experience I dont bother with the stereo and on a long drive  the volume is too much I see empi exhaust systems with a phat muffler has anyone put this setup on ?does more back pressure improve proformance?

More back pressure reduces performance...

Generally....but only above a certain degree. A certain amount helps with scavenging. Also a good merged collector is much better than duals.

This discussion continues ad nauseum on multiple forums....  and true that a proper collector design enhances the scavenging effect. But most folks don't wish to spend money on a header/collector design that will take into account all of the factors of their engine - things like valve area/lift/cam duration/etc.
