Trubendz 3 Inche Exhaust
 
Looking to purchase this went searching on youtube, but there was non svts, and the a SVT with 2.5 Mangaflows. I was woundering if anyone here could really tell a diffrences between the Borla Manga and Flowmaster. I'm partial to the Flowmasters but I know Borla a good company also, so if anyone out here has a 3 inch set up let me know also thinking about the 3flex and maybe a ORP and just swap in my HFC for Inspections.

Go for it!!! There are a few people around here running 3" cat backs around here (including flex pipe) I think it was Tom who posted some time ago about the gains to be had from a 3" flex back and flex pipe. I don't remember what the gains were off the top of my head, but they were noticeable and worth it. If I had the money I would definitely be adding a 3" ORP back, but alas I am mostly broke..

The stock flex pipe is a major pinch point, it was smaller than the tubing on the rest of the SVT exhaust setup.

woot to post #69. I like that number, 69. It's just such a pleasurable number. [woot][headbang]

That number stinks some time, bit yeah jay racing had a 3 orp but out of stock forever so yeah but tom said to keep my hfc if I get pulled over and they see no cat it's a ticket so I'll just pay it safe think I'm going with the flow master

truebendz fits like shit. i sold mine before i even had it for a year. you get what you pay for

StephenElsbree1986 10-28-2012 05:36 PM

Don't understand you get what you pay for it's 600 buck for flex back that isn't cheap and out like 407 stainless

jwill2489 10-28-2012 05:37 PM

It will fit horribly, it will stick out too far. Get an exhaust from FSWerks

StephenElsbree1986 10-28-2012 05:38 PM

Of you know a better company then them I'm willing to look Tom suggest them to me for my Turbo plans

jwill2489 10-28-2012 05:41 PM

2.5 inch will flow fine. Fswerks for exhaust. CFM for Orp and trubendz for flex

If you put an ORP and flowmaster on it I DEMAND a sound clip! Haha I love flowmaster I'm just afraid to pull the trigger and put it on because I am not sure how it will sound on a four banger.

StephenElsbree1986 11-06-2012 03:03 PM

I heard a 2.5 with cat wasn't sure if it was hfc or stock and it sounded like the throaty Flowmaster sound but followed up by the rasping 4cylinder not sure if I liked it much, my friends and I are all Flowmaster American Thunder on our fox bodys and it just sounds great not sureon the SVT though. It'd be 3"Flex CFM ORP and Trubendz 3" Flowmaster not sure if I want that before or after my Turbo, probably after since that will be around 800+ which I can put to the turbo first
