550's exhaust is not like a 335 for example where you can pull the vaccum line and keep it open, it uses vaccuum to open to valve so by disconnecting it, your valve never opens
You need to use metal clamp on the top actuator thing to hold it open.
Im sure, that + downpipes will be the way to go.

Appreciate the reply man..I went ahead and had a custom catback made and Im pretty satisfied with it for now
