Straight pipes before or after break-in?

I tried searching for this but didn't get anything back so here it goes. I haven't gotten my car yet hoping for June but when I do I want to go to straight pipes, does it matter if I do this before or after the break-in period? If it doesn't matter than it will most likely go right from the dealership to the exhaust shop.

Here is what I'd like to do.

Break in???? What break in?

Seriously....do some searching. From what I've seen/heard it might do you well to be somewhat agressive right off the bat.

However, to answer your question, the muffler delete shouldn't do anything to the motor. I would probably drive it right to the muffler shop. That's just me.

I would advise, as much as your wallet allows, do do your mods before even driving the car.

I'm looking for a sound increase only, everything else will not affect mechanics, painted stripes, fuel door, gills, etc.

I figure if straight pipes end up being too much (noise wise) I can always go to a Borla or SLP axle back later.
