Can someone explain the difference between getting a full exhaust system and a slip on only? Is there a noticable performance difference for the extra price tag? I saw the price difference for a termi full system and a pair of slip-ons was $1000 bucks or so. I dont plan on doing any racing anytime soon, so should I just stick to the slip ons?

The difference between the Sil Moto slip-ons and full system is about $600---and yes it is worth it if you are searching for more power or want a different look becuase eventually it will come back to the exhaust system if you are doing engine mods.

for most folks slip-ons are good enough... they drop some weight (up to 12lbs in some cases), sound good, give a few more inches for the corners, and might open another horsepower or two. unless you're planning engine mods slip ons should be fine. full systems usually are larger in diameter and the good full systems will significantly increase ground clearance. the larger diameter won't usually do much on a stock engine but would definitely help out for larger displacement mods later on. spaghetti headers will scavenge exhaust better while providing the best corner clearances. i believe the old fbf forza's and some of the old dp headers used to just be an oversized stock header... they didn't really give you that much without engine mods and provided no additional corner clearance. my understanding that the current fbf stuff is just rebadged sil moto and those are the better spaghetti type header much like the current termi's. i replaced my stock header with a staintune spaghetti system after a laydown... the staintune spaghetti was only about $100 more than a oem header and cans back then (now they're more like unobtanium)... but i'm slowly but surely changing out stuff on the engine.

hmm it seems slip-ons are best for me. thanks for the info! i think that when i can afford the engine mods i'll look into another exhaust. here's hoping santa (i know its early, but it takes 5 weeks to get them here) brings them to me.
