De-baffling my 2014 Nomad, need some help!

Need some help! De-baffling my 2014 Nomad. Wondering if it will really make much of a difference if I just settle for taking out those first two baffles on each pipe. Pipes are stock.

Also, for those first two baffles, is a hole drill the only way to remove them? Someone said something to me about unscrewing them? But I'm not sure what they mean...

Sorry for the noob question. Just a little confused about what would be best!

I drilled them out on my 2012 Nomad with a 12" inch extension, just did the first 2 . They are welded in over here so not sure about the screws? Was a cheap way to stop in sounding like a sewing machine & I was pleased with the sound, there are a few video's on the forum & youtube which give an idea of the sound. I only changed to Vance & Hines slip ons because I happened upon a used set for $300

There is nothing to unscrew. The hole saw is the only thing you can do to remove the two baffle plates.
