Default Selling Impreza: Should I put back on the stock exhaust?

I have a growley custom engineered (Robson Racing) 2.5" exhaust system on my car (headers to tip). It gives about 20 or so extra HP (very noticeable on the butt dyno).

However, it bumps with my tranny under engine braking, so it makes some clunking sounds, which are completely harmless. I might be moving to the U.S. in September, so I would have to sell my car. Should I put the stock system back on the car? Or do you think most buyers might like having a $3000 exhaust on the car with some rough edges (which can be easily fixed by spending $600 on installing STI motor and tranny mounts).

Let me know your opinion on which would be easier to sell. I dont want to spend the money replacing the exhaust only to have someone say "I want to upgrade the exhaust to something more growley!"

It could be as simply fixed as some urethane hangers for the exhaust too.
