Mild steel will give a better note, as it's a thicker steel, but it's also heavier and rusts quicker than stainless, also costs less too. You will want 2.5" from the cat backwards, if you aren't looking at doing anything big in the future, any bigger and it's overkill. If you get extractors/headers, like said before, you will need it tuned to remove the 'check engine' light. not sure on places in perth, but hope I helped a little.

I put an exhaust on mine.
Even when i get the engine flashed it still shows the engine light.

I have pacemaker headers, and a 2.5" system through it. I also added the growler intake as well.
I have a link in my signature block. go take a listen :) all up cost me $2300. It certainly makes a difference to the car. Better sound, better fuel efficiency, and better pickup.
