mattmoz where do you get 2.75 at

Magus2727 3" on turbo will help spool times. 2.5 or 2.75" would be fine for SC.

macdiesel I thought 2.5" was loud with one muffler, couldn't imagine a 3" exhaust. 2.5 should be fine if you go sc.

Magus2727 if going NA you wont see any gains going from 2.5 to 3. if going turbo then go 3" regardless of when you actually get the turbo set up. just get as big of a resonator as possible for the straight section.
