Keep it stock for awhile. You've got better things to spend money on.

Have to respectfully disagree. While leaving the exhaust stock is a very pragmatic decision, swapping to a Flowmaster or Magnaflow produces pure, unadulterated auditory pleasure. The sound is well worth the price, IMO...

That by no means guarantees the car wouldn't benefit from exhaust work.

Tell us more Jason. Do you know something more than the several 2000'* that took their cars into the 13'* on stock piping and components?

I'd be looking at PEM'* or headers before that. Or at the same time. Keep the cat, resonator and mufflers for now.
