Unfortunately you won't save much money by replacing the muffler with pipe, just the cost of the stainless muffler baffling. The welding stays the same and setup should be unremarkable. I'd have to do something with the support plate between the tailpipe and the muffler housing or vibration would be an issue.
By the time it's all said and done it would be a wash. If you show the car often the noise level of a straight pipe might be a problem. We can talk about it and you can then make an informed decision.
