thanks. not sure how well that would work, anything over 2.5" is usually recommended for boosted cars. unless you plan on that!

I think you got a awesome deal on that car. Coming along nice. I had a Borla exhaust and Focus Sport headers on my old Zx3. It sounded awesome. Here is a video of what it sounded like from the inside of my car.

Definitely coming along nicely. That Borla sure looks good on there don't it? You might not notice the sound difference right away, since it shouldn't be drastically different. But trust me it grows on you and gets better with time.

eventually boost will happen... and yeah, 2.5 is recommended.. but 3" would just be awesome in the mean time. esp on the kraken to go with my 3" intake.
