I've tried really hard but can't seem to get the damn thing to fit without putting a few bends in it.

not literally. seems like a 3" off the turbo with no muffler would sound pretty good.

yes, it will sound good (if really loud is good).

Seems like most get over it sooner or later especially if you drive much ....and put at least a small muffler of sorts, resonator, (cherry bomb works well).

It's is really not very loud at all. Maybe 10-15% louder than a full muffler. Runs much better too.

Well....yup, your right it isn't that loud and I run mine like that (straight that is). Wasn't the point I was making, or intending.

My comment refers to the trend I've noticed with customers who all want that narly straight pipe sound until they've driven it for a while....on the road....highway....and they feel the need to tone it down a little. We've done some fairly quiet, very fast diesels.

Also found that for stock motor performance a full on straight pipe does nothing for perceptable performance whatsoever compared to say an NRP stainless system with two resonators. How this compares to a standard Rover system I have no idea as I've never used one.

Once you start playing with the IP then you should think about modifying the exhaust.
