Your going to want to run 2.5 or 3" for the turbo any ways so i wouldn't invest any more time on our exhaust other than what you have already done until your ready to bump up the tubing size.
Thats what I was thinking too. Why mess w/ that s^%$. I'd be figuring out the turbo, bv, boost controler's ect. How 'bout a clutch or a torsen or quaife & your suspension?

Gonna call Shenanigans here--until somebody comes out with a tune for these cars, there's not much sense in "prepping your car for a turbo". SCT was probably our best hope for a tuner for the '12+, and it sounds like they've given-up on it.

I totally missed the part where this was an mk3... thats what happens when i just scroll through the new posts vs going thourgh the forum.

VH5150 is right.

Suggest low and slow until parts start showing up in a couple-few years. Right now the after market crew isn't doing jack for the MK3 unless it says ST on your front grille.

Keep bugging SCT.
