Really? Hrm, I could've sworn I read somewhere here that the DP lowers the tone of the exhaust and makes it mildly louder.

Up to you. I guess it's a matter of personal preference. If I had to pick between a catback, or a DP+UP+tune, I'd pick the DP+UP+tune.
Grimmspeed crossover pipe
GS Ported and polished exhaust manifold
COBB catted DP
AVO panel filter (intake silencer removed)
Stock CBE
I don't think the exhaust manifold affects the sound much, so for the most part that's what your car would sound like with a DP.
