Turbo Exhaust?

If I were to go turbo would I NEED to go with a 3 inch exhaust or would I be alright with a normal magnaflow or borla?

The bigger the better. 3" is optimal.

how much boost are you going to push? minimal boost would only require a 2.5.

I was GOING to say that if you just wanna go turbo, the stock exhaust is fine. The question is how much you want to get out of the system.

THEN i read the part about 240-260 at the wheels.... in that case, you're gonna need ALL the help you can get. I'd probably shoot for the 3" if I were you.

yeah, with the three inch catback, flex, and hi-flow cat/offroad pipe, you should be pushing out some good power. get a new throttle body and a ported intake manifold, along with new rubber, and you should have plenty of pwoer on tap.
