I guess you can say I ran a dump I have an electronic cutout which lets me switch between full magnaflow exhaust and the 3" dump. I wouldn't suggest you run a dump all the time on the streets its pretty loud. Ohh and I hope your boosted because you made a comment saying from the turbo is really loud If your running all motor you will actually lose power n/a set ups want to see restrictions of the full exhaust when turbo cars just want toi get the exhaust out as fast as possible so Yes I suggest a dump for turbocharged cars but not daily driven because you will get pulled over and given a hefty ticket

I run a dump on all of mine , There wont be a loss of power if anything you will see a slight gain because a lot of the exh does not have to be pushed all the way out the tail pipe

It comes down to if you want the noise

I can't remember the dyno I saw or who it was.

It was a focus with a 3" Turbo back exhaust and a 38mm WG.

He ran a straight dump tube from the 38mm WG and lost 15whp.
