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.

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

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.

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
