I've got a much larger than stock turbo fitted on my car and the stock axleback costs me 5 - 10 whp tops. I gain around 15whp with a full cutout.
You are giving up some horsepower, but it isn't very much for the amount of sound the stock axleback is able to suppress. Obviously, if you want every last horsepower you'll want larger piping but it certainly won't be as quiet
