axleback/catback option

This is just a thought, but has anyone just gone out and put upgraded mufflers/tips instead of the whole axle back or cat-back set up? If so, what are/would be the differences? I've read that exhaust on AV6 is really just an aesthetic upgrade for looks and sound, with no real measurable HP/torque gains. What say you, oh wise and learned accord gurus? The ask because if it is just a looks/sound issue why not get a couple of the lower priced cans and tips(conservative of course). I think it would also be easier to place them for a better looking exit on sedans--ie straight out vs angled down. I've never been one for name brand anyway and I'm sure it would save some $$$. any input?

When I had my 2000 AV6 i only had mufflers replaced, which didn't do anything performance wise, but it did sound and look good. Now I have Tanabe catback on my 03 av6, which is great for sound, look, and performance. You can definitely tell the difference by butt dyno. hope this helps
