Yes, if your municipality has a noise ordinance. You can fined for disturbing the peace and a fine and will need to install a muffler at that point. An inspection will be set up afterward to see that you did it. Also if your remove your catalytic convertors you won't be able to get it inspected properly either if your area does emissions testing.

Putting a straight pipe will not give it anymore power and will piss the neighbors off. Don't be stupid and do it. Also you are required to have a working muffling device on you vehicle when it is being used on public roadways. You can be issued a traffic summons for having a straight pipe.
