Straight pipe?

So i want more horse power but i dont want my car to be super loud and sound like shit. Right now i have a resonator. I have leaks in the back close to my muffler so i want to raplace my exaust system but i heard straight pipe gives it more HP. Whats better? Straight pipe? Sport catalytic ? Or resonator?

An exhaust will give you maybe 3 horsepower. Get something that sounds nice and be done with it. Most catbacks are straight through as it is.

If you don't want it super loud and to sound like shit, don't go straight pipe.

You sound confused, bro. A straight pipe will be super loud. A resonator and a catalytic converter are not the same thing. You can get a "sport catalytic" or you can use your original cat or you can eliminate it altogether. I would recommend a full stainless steel exhaust system (which will likely include a resonator). Get a name brand system like the Invidia Q300. The cheap ones will be loud.

If you are on a budget then get OBX one piece race header for only 200$ but don’t cheap out in the catback

OP, if you don't want to spend 5 or 600 on a name brand system (which I recommend), then AT LEAST get a Yonaka brand system over the shitty catbacks on Ebay that are under $200. I have a Yonaka catback on my daily driver Civic and it's a nice system for the money. Little bit of a growl, but not loud or annoying at all.
